How do I find friends for my parents after I leave for college?

I'm about to leave for college across the country. However, I'm a bit worried about my parents. They currently have no real friends that they can spend time with, and they only keep in loose contact with relatives. I am an only child, so after I leave they'll be left with an empty nest.

Is there any advice, apps, methods, etc I can provide them with so they can connect with more people? They are rather "off-the-grid" currently, but I bet I could convince them to use more tech if it was beneficial! I feel like they'd never actively seek out friends on their own unless they were provided with means to do so. Any advice?
