Bingo with Seniors
January 4, 2009Free
Join us for a fun filled afternoon of Bingo with the residents of Cabrini! You do not even need to know how to play. We will teach you. All we need are enthusiastic, friendly, compassionate volunteers.
Most of the residents do not get any visitor at all. And most are wheel chair bound as well. Most are visually or hearing impaired too. This is an opportunity to provide them the much needed social interaction.
Volunteer responsibility primarily includes assisting the residents in playing bingo. We do require volunteers to bring the residents from their room and take them back as well.
We request all volunteers to bring bingo prizes. You can bring anything reasonable within your budget. Suggested prizes include a SMALL snack, for example chips, pretzels, cookies. But if you can afford and if you want to be generous, you are more than welcome to bring anything else that you think a senior would love. But please do NOT bring any used items. Please bring new items ONLY. Edible items need to have expiry dates! Thanks in advance.
Duration: Between 1:45pm and 4pm
Meeting place: To encourage everybody to sign up online, we will provide you the exact location after you sign up. The location is closer to the intersection of East 5th Street and Avenue ‘B’
Direction: F or V train to 2nd Avenue
If you have any question, please use the comments when you sign up. Thanks!
