Lambton Elderly Outreach is currently looking for people to aid in their fundraising efforts through Bingo.
Volunteering for BINGO is so easy! Gone are the days of being a ‘runner’ because everything is done electronically so that all that is involved is clearing tables and promoting LEO. A short 30-minute training session is required and 2 hours of your time which provides the organization with BINGO shares. It’s a fantastic fundraiser!
Bingo sessions occur two (2), to three (3) times a month for two (2) hours slots.
No handling of cash is required.
Dress code is in effect as per OLG, and OCGA regulations. Black pants and we will provide a golf shirt.
