Step 3:   Email volunteer@mowcm.org for a Teen Takeover Bingo Card to print at home, or sign up for a meal packing shift here and ask for a physical copy after your shift.

Step 4:  After completing each square on the card, get it initialed and dated by a Meals on Wheels staff person. This can be done at our main office during a packing shift/donation drop-off, or by emailing a photo verification to volunteer@mowcm.org and noting our email response date on the card. Squares must be completed and dated between 11/15/21 and 1/7/22.

Step 5:  Return your card or take a photo of your completed card and email it to us by Friday, January 7th to be entered into our Teen Takeover Raffle.

Multiple BINGOs per card are accepted (15 Raffle entries for a complete card). *Please include in your submission how many BINGOS you completed. Raffle winners will be notified via email by January 14th.
