For the Love of Myth is presented in partnership with Volunteering for Seniors. VFS’s mission is to reduce loneliness and isolation among elders, help them stay more energetic, and make sure that they blend into their communities without difficulties. They achieve this through meaningful volunteering. Those who join this noble cause have a heart for their work. Their volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of members. VFS's aim is to serve elderly citizens in an all-inclusive manner, enabling them to live more active, dignified, and healthier lives.
