Monthly bingo games take place at the Tulare Women’s Clubhouse. Everyone has a good time. The winners have a Great time. This past Saturday, as one person yelled “Bingo!” about six dozen others groaned. This is always an exciting event. The players experience not only the fun of the games, but also the pride of contributing to a worthy cause.
Tulare Emergency Aid Council (TEAC)
The recipient of the bingo profits is the Tulare Emergency Aid Council in California. This Council makes a difference. It feeds those in need. The aim of its “Brown Baggin’ for Hunger” campaign is to make givers of the entire community. The pledge they are seeking is $20 monthly: The price of a couple of meals each month.
Tulare Emergency Aid Council provides all of the necessities of life to anyone having trouble providing for themselves and their families. Services include transportation, gasoline, clothes, doctors’ prescriptions, housing and food. Anything necessary to get the individual on the road to self-reliance is freely given by the Council. Their aid spans the working poor and those unable to obtain employment.
This is such a worthy cause that the Tulare Women’s Clubhouse hosts a monthly bingo party to join the list of contributors and become a part of the giving. Bingo is the game of choice when looking to donate.
