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.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
