About

Every Thursday at 3 pm and Saturday at 2 pm, norVOLution staffs volunteers to join the fun and help our senior residents enjoy one of their favorite games - Bingo! Volunteers are asked to arrive ½ hour prior to Bingo and stay ½ hour after.

Our residents are most appreciative of volunteers who help in this capacity and it is a nice time to socialize and spend time with them. Many volunteers and residents form friendships which enhance the lives of both.

Volunteers are needed to assist residents as they play the game. Residents need varied kinds of assistance; some with seeing the Bingo card, some have hearing loss and some physically may need a volunteer’s help in placing their Bingo tokens on the card. Staff also needs assistance from volunteers to transport residents via wheel chair or accompany them as they walk to Bingo.
