Covid Vaccine: Volunteers must be fully vaccinated with the Covid Vaccine in order to participate to include children. Please be prepared to show your vaccination card if asked on-site.
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 this, 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.
