Bingo Volunteer

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 (hours are flexible) 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.

Come out and chat with the players and enjoy time with the other volunteer at the session.
