Downstown - Game Night - Thursday

**This project is designed for groups of 10 or smaller.  Please do not sign up for this project if your group is larger than ten.  Volunteers must be fully vaccinated with the Covid Vaccine or provide a negative COVID-19 test in order to participate.**

Sign up to visit one of six Downstown homes and play games with the residents. Please bring a few simple games and/or activities that will ensure a fun night with these super-friendly adults with Down Syndrome or other developmental disabilities.

Suggested Games and Activities:

  • BINGO (most popular!)*
  • UNO Card Game*
  • Connect 4
  • Karaoke
  • Cookie Decorating
  • Knitting/Crocheting/Holiday Crafts
  • Guitar/piano-led singing
  • *Most of the houses have a set of Bingo and UNO that you may use 

Covid vaccine and masks guidelines:  Downstown understands that the rest of the world is starting to relax, but they are mandated to follow strictest guidelines by the county and licensing department.  We hope you’ll understand.  Visitors must be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test within one day of visitation to participate (be prepared to show proof).  Visitors will be screened upon entering and masks are required at all times inside the house regardless of vaccination status.

Snacks:  You are welcome to bring a healthy snack to share with the residents.  There are currently about four residents per home.  If you bring prizes for for Bingo, please bring a small prize (Dollar Store is always great!) for each person.  It’s always more fun if “everyone” wins and this keeps all the residents happy and excited.

Location:  Following your registration, an email will be sent with the house address and reminder details about the project.  There are six homes we try to rotate through in order to allow each of them a game night.

Group Size: This project is geared for groups of 10 or smaller due to the size of the homes.  If your group is larger than ten, we may be able to separate the group between two houses.  Please let us know in the comments if you’d like to do this.

Child Friendly:  Yes, children are welcome.
