The Director of Activities at Foothil Acres has sent in a request for any troops that would be interested in visiting and playing Bingo with the residents. This can be done on a regular basis, once in a while or just once or twice. Intergenerational activities are a wonderful way to provide community service to earn hours towards Heart of Service as well as doing something nice for someone!
Any troop interested should contact Caitlyn Campbell (Director of Activities at Foothill Acres) at (908) 369-8711 X5243.
Please copy Erica Lenzo (email@example.com) or send her a note to let her know that you are participating. Please send the troop number along with the girls names.
