    Whistlestop is offering calls from a high school student to folks 65 and older who are missing family & friends. Call 415-456-9062 to learn more or sign up. Great way to get a caring voice to someone feeling isolated. Talk to those not on computers, ask if they'd like this in addition to your caring calls. Also, Whistlestop realizes that Seniors can help high schoolers while they receive the call. The teens are trained in making these calls, and training is continous, but the life- and work-experience of a Senior to let them know how they're doing would be beneficial all-around.
