Social Impact

Commitment to the Greater Community

As a Kendal Affiliate, Barclay Friends commitment to community benefit goes beyond random acts of kindness. For Kendal, community benefit is about social responsibility and impact – an intentional identification of goals, objectives, resources, and strategies to address community needs in collaboration with organizations, community members, and agencies to achieve shared goals relating to issues in the aging process.

We accomplish this through staff and resident engagement in varied and wide-ranging activities that give back to the greater community outside their four-walls by sharing time through volunteerism, expertise through educational programs, and resources through fiscal and facilities contributions.

Barclay Friends 2nd Annual Adopt-a-Highway Clean Up

Barclay Friends adopted a stretch of highway in early 2019 through the Adopt-a-Highway program sponsored by PennDOT. In November 2020, a group of staff volunteers gathered in the parking lot to set off on a mission to find and bag as much litter as they could along this stretch of road on Route 100.
