Call BINGO over the phone for older adults

Family Eldercare

Martin plays Bingo

Family Eldercare's Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone-based activities program that provides isolated and lonely older adults an opportunity to connect with others across the country. We offer social and educational sessions, support groups, and friendly conversation - all over the phone - all from the comfort of home.

We're looking for volunteers to facilitate our BINGO session on Thursdays 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm Central Standard Time (CST).

The time commitment is about 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm CST to account for pre and post-session tasks, e.g., entering session notes and BINGO points in our Google Drive.

**ALSO, we are considering creating a second BINGO session, so if Thursdays at 12:30 pm CST are not good for you, please still inquire, as we may be able to find a day/time for the second session that works for you.

This volunteer opportunity is completely virtual and can be done anywhere.
All you need is a phone, computer, and internet. Training and ongoing support provided.

Thanks so much for considering this opportunity!

P.S. Please note, you must live in the U.S. to volunteer for this opportunity.
