For a while we did quarterly bingo at a nursing home. Helped out the
Activity staff, nice for the residents, and a good experience for the boys.
Also, we do an annual "campout" at a nursing home. Some of the residents
come out to watch the boys cook, etc. We cook extra and eat inside, a few
residents joining us for every meal.
Ask your sponsor if there's any work that needs doing at their
facility--painting, yardwork, general clean-up, etc.
