Arrive around 6:15 to assist with set up, if possible. It's optimal to have 3 - 4 people per night, but there is no true limit on number of volunteers.
Duties can include calling the bingo game, assisting resident/s with their cards, socializing w/ residents prior to game, and at times escorting them back to their rooms after the game. Occasional peace-keeping. :)
An easy-going and "go with the flow" attitude is helpful. Residents range in age, abilities, temperament and cognition, but they are grateful for the work we do.
The number of residents tends to be in the 12 - 15 range, and they are hard-core bingo-ers. We award small cash prizes and/or dollar store gifts to winners, so if you are inclined to contribute cash (quarters or dollars) or prizes, please do so! We don't provide food items since we don't know the residents' dietary restrictions.
Looking forward to meeting you! Please message me if you have any questions.
