Did you know that the Delta Bingo on Clonsilla Ave is a Charity Bingo? This means that volunteers assist with the bingo (paper recycling and trash pick-up) and not for profit organizations such as ours, receive credits and are provided with income for those credits. Every time you play bingo, at Delta Bingo, you are also supporting a charity, a win/win for everyone. At the John Howard Society our Men Supporting Men, Community Mediation and Caring Dads Programs all benefit from our volunteers who help out with the bingo. This allows us to hire group facilitators, train mediators and support dinners for some of Peterborough’s most vulnerable people. Minimum commitment would be 3 hours every other month.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at charity bingo please contact the JHS main office.
