Once a Month on Sundays



Brookdale Assisted Living

Leader: Krista Gehlhausen

Volunteering with senior citizens is a great way to get life advice and have fun with some super fun people! Many people at Brookdale do not receive a lot of visits from family, so our game night is the bright spot of their week!

Join us to talk and play games with our local area senior citizens! We usually play card games, board games, dominos, or even put together puzzles. 

Meet at the flag pole outside of the gym about 5:15 pmWe will depart around 5:30 pm to arrive just before our volunteer time at 6:00. Please come ready to drive yourself or organize a carpool with other volunteers. Limited spots will be open for students who do not have transportation. Contact Krista Gehlhausen @ or 817-718-7243 for more information.
