Nobody – that’s who!
On February 23, the LSS Better Together program is hosting a BINGO Night – and the public is invited to join.
The LSS Better Together program has been connecting volunteers with older adults since 2015. Since beginning, the program has worked with 50 matches. However, the number of older adults in need has outpaced the number of available volunteers.To help people learn more about the program, the BINGO Night will bring together older adults and potential volunteers as well as current matches who can talk about their experiences in the program.
Better Together is looking for volunteers to provide friendship, socialization and four hours of their time each month to spend with people over 65 in the Sioux Empire. Whether it’s swinging by for coffee, going out to lunch or playing some cards – you can do these little things that can mean so much to people who enjoy – and need – a friendly face around. LSS requires volunteers to commit to one year when they sign up for the program. Potential volunteers need to apply, successfully complete a background screen and attend an orientation before being matched with an older adult.
