Seniors Night Out

Bake Back America was inspired to create Seniors Night Out due to the lack of senior programs resulting from COVID 19. This initiative enables volunteers to connect to this age group through a variety of activities such as dance, bingo, story time, and sing alongs. Volunteers will have an opportunity to give joy and companionship to so many in need.
