Game Night at the Pomeroy

Play cards and a variety of board games with low-income seniors. This is a very interactive program in which volunteers pair up with residents, so come ready to get to know a very social group! Your participation will help build a sense of community for these seniors by providing companionship and an opportunity to gather together with their neighbors.

  • Easy El access: Red Line
