Senior Centers

Volunteers can join one of our Neighborhood Senior Centers for a day of arts& crafts, Nintendo wii tournaments, bingo, card games, and makeshift baseball. These seniors are a bit more independent, so your team can be flexible as it pertains to the types of activities you want to present. Volunteers should arrive at 10am and plan to remain until around 2pm. To ensure a successful experience, volunteers should bring bingo prizes (i.e. soap, mouthwash, and toothpaste) Monday-Friday, locations vary.

Adult Day Health

Individual or group volunteers can join our Adult Day Health program, which hosts seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia, for a day of arts & crafts, karaoke, board games and/or bingo. Volunteers should arrive at 10am and plan to remain until around 2pm. To ensure a successful experience, volunteers are welcome to bring a karaoke machine (w/mic and music) and bingo prizes. Bingo prizes consist of small toiletry items (i.e. soap, mouthwash, and toothpaste). Monday-Friday - located at 1705 Commerce Dr NW 30318
