Bingo is the second largest fundraiser for St. Bernadette parish making close to $20,000 annually with substantial room for growth with the help of additional volunteers. Weekly bingo requires approximately 14 people in front of and behind the scenes to successfully operate. Volunteer opportunities range from 1 hour a month to 5 hours a month. Most bingo workers are assigned to a certain week of the month they choose and are expected to fulfill their volunteer obligations on that week. For example if you volunteered to work FIRST week, the first Friday of each calendar month you would be responsible for working or covering your volunteer position. Below are job descriptions. Each position comes with full training with a person currently working that position and information from the Bingo handbook outlining the position’s responsibilities. Please look them over and discern whether you are able to give of your time and talent to help out this very important fundraiser.
