Agency Name: Lutheran Social Services of SD (Mentoring Services)

Name of Project: Better Together BINGO Night

Recommended Date and Time For Project: August 15th 6-8pm

Number of Volunteers Needed: 0 - Project is Full

Project Description: Befriend an older adult in our community by attending the Better Together BINGO Night! At this event volunteers will meet people who are participating in the LSS Better Together program. This program matches volunteers (individuals, couples or families) with an older adult for the purpose of building a friendship. This event will allow volunteers to learn more about how this program works and who they may be matched with.Volunteers at this event are not committing to one year of participation.

Tools & Materials Needed to Complete the Project: Snacks and BINGO prizes ($5 gift cards to restaurants, hygiene items, etc - about 10 options). If desired, we could share a simple meal at the beginning of the evening or have an ice cream bar and pie. If that is not an option, just providing pretzels and popcorn would significantly decrease the cost.

The Following Tools & Materials Will Be Provided: BINGO cards, BINGO drum

Special Requirements for the Project: Families can volunteer together, provided that at least one person is over age 18 will be present for the entire event.
