40 Volunteers Needed for Waynesboro Senior Center Bingo by Aug. 30

wscThanks to the generous donation by the Auxiliary of the Waynesboro First Aid Crew of its Bingo equipment, VPAS will be able to resume the Auxiliary’s legacy of offering Charitable Gaming/Bingo to Waynesboro and the surrounding community beginning in September at the Waynesboro Senior Center.

WSC is looking for 40 dedicated individuals to create 4 Teams of 10 volunteers each to operate Bingo. Volunteers should have a very strong desire to:  help raise funds to offset the more than $100,000 reduction in VPAS’ federal funding and avoid a reduction in critical services to older adults; provide an evening of entertainment to upwards of 100 individuals, most of whom are older adults; increase the public’s awareness of WSC; work with a Team of like-minded individuals; and have some fun!

Bingo will be held every Thursday evening, except on national holidays. Doors will open at 4:30 pm; Bingo starts at 6:30 pm, and ends by 9:30 pm. The WSC Kitchen will offer food and beverages. Each Volunteer Team will operate Bingo on the same Thursday each month, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Thursday, sharing a fifth Thursday.

A volunteer’s initial commitment of 6-12 months, beginning in September, is desired; time is needed to master the volunteer’s responsibilities and build the Teams. The number of hours a volunteer serves depends on the position.

Each Team consists of the following positions: Bingo Manager (1/Team), Bingo Greeters (2/Team), Bingo Caller (1/Team), Bingo Cashier (1/Team), Bingo Floor Workers (3/Team), Kitchen Workers (2/Team). Volunteers may work on more than one Team. 

All volunteers receive extensive training, wear a provided uniform of a WSC volunteer shirt and name tag, and receive a free meal.

For additional information, or to express interest in volunteering, contact Waynesboro Senior Center Director Karen Hurt as soon as possible at 942-1838, karenh@vpas.info.
