Stay Healthy and Stay Well
The Daily Call Sheet
MPTF, in partnership with the AARP Foundation, created Daily Call Sheet – a volunteer-driven telephone based, social connectivity program designed to keep industry members engaged. The Daily Call Sheet links volunteers with industry veterans, offering phone calls to individuals who may no longer be working and who wish to maintain their connection to others in their industry. The program’s impact has been profound and exceeded expectations since its launch in 2017.
Focused on helping members of the entertainment community in times of need, the Daily Call Sheet is one of many ways that MPTF is committed to a culture of caring and ‘taking care of its own.’ This initiative was inspired by the The Silver Line program in the United Kingdom and the increasing global awareness around and recognition of, social isolation and loneliness as a critical health concern impacting our well-being.
MPTF is working closely with the AARP foundation to develop a set of tools and programs that will allow other organizations to tackle the challenges of loneliness and social isolation as well. This collaboration will shine a spotlight on these critical issues, provide a platform to replicate and scale this effort nationwide and create essential connections to help people live well, age well and thrive!
