Bingo Fun with Seniors at Caroline Hedger Apartments

Enrich the lives of low-income seniors by interacting with them during multiple rounds of the popular game! The project takes place at a diverse building in which many languages are spoken, so a large board is used during Bingo for all participants to follow along regardless of language. You’ll help create an inviting atmosphere that builds community among residents, provides companionship, and offers a fun social outlet for seniors who often live alone. The game also allows non-English-speaking residents to practice their language skills by playing with English speakers.
