On the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. you will find a group of faithful volunteers at Winchester House. While we always assist the residents playing BINGO, it goes much deeper than that. The residents look forward to visiting with the “Grace friends” and building relationships. They also enjoy the prizes we bring: quarters and stuffed animals. The stuffed animals are either kept by the residents to decorate their rooms or given to their grandchildren (or great-grandchildren!) when they visit. Cookies and juice are also provided for the residents – a treat they all look forward to.
For the volunteers, it is a mere two hour commitment a month, but for the residents it is ever so much more. It truly is a win-win solution for the volunteers as well as the residents.
