Playing bingo is more than a game, it has several health benefits and increases socialization in the community which is especially important for seniors. Playing bingo requires concentration and listening which boosts one's cognitive ability.
Bingo plays a very crucial role in mental stimulation and lowers the risk of dementia.

That means that every time you play a game, have a beverage at Superior Shores Gaming licensed lounge, or order a snack or meal from a restaurant menu, you're helping these charitable organizations do great work in our community. These cover a wide variety of important causes such as healthcare, education, children's needs, reducing poverty, and community projects, right here in Thunder Bay.
A portion also goes to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), a provincial agency, which supports priorities such as healthcare and sports across Ontario including Thunder Bay.
Community Clothing Assistance isn’t just a charitable organization our clothing center is open to the public to! So for all the people who still think thrift shopping isn’t cool… you’ve got it all wrong!
Yes, there used to be a negative stigma around second-hand clothing, that it’s degrading and dirty feeling like Someone is wearing someone else’s “trash”, something that they have thrown away. It’s all assumption because those who think that way have probably never tried it. I suggest that everyone should try thrift shopping every once in a while or just walk into a thrift store and see what you find! The Stigma about buying clothing second-hand is not as prominent anymore. That was then and this is now.
It’s no secret that thrift shopping is no longer looked at negatively, it’s definitely on trend. You can find designer clothing, expensive brands for more than half the price and that’s the rewarding part. Shopping at a thrift store is definitely the way to go when looking to get dressed for 20.00 or less, but to get the best deal you’ll have to shop at Community Clothing Assistance. Adult Bag Day is a sale that goes on and you basically fill a bag up of clothes and its only $20.00! It’s a great deal, but just wait there’s one more surprise…You can pack up to 30 pieces in your bag! So now it’s not just a few outfits you get a several outfits! Here are some tips to get the most out of your adult bag day.
Donating is the ultimate way to sustain old clothing and other items to people who cannot afford it due to various financial or other issues. The primary reason for people to lack clothing is poverty which is increasing at a significant pace in Thunder Bay. According to the Lakehead Social Planning Council report on local poverty in Thunder Bay states that “40% of females and 60% of males are living below low-income measure (LIM), among which 28% are youth 39% are the people from the age group between 30-49 years, followed by 33% of senior citizens. Furthermore, 52% of those are Indigenous population.” This shows that there is a high need for clothing and other items in our community.
Poverty is defined as a condition of being extremely poor. People living below certain amount or no income are usually the ones suffering in poverty. According to Lakehead Social Planning Council (LSPC), “Poverty can be divided in two groups, Absolute and Relative Poverty. People living in absolute poverty are the ones who are unable to fulfill basic resources such as, safe housing, clean water, healthy/nutritious food, supports and health care for maintaining physical and mental health, this group of poverty can be eradicated. Relative poverty consists of people who are unable to meet the required standards of life determined by a government.”
