How to Do TV Program Tips:

What does your favorite senior citizen watch on TV? Nature programs? Musical specials? Classic movies? Ask him or her.

Then go through your local television guide and copy information about the programs you think they would most enjoy in large, easy-to-read print. For regular weekly programs, you can make a personal guide once a month.

Update it for specials once a week. If you don't know a senior citizen, ask your local elderly living center if there is a "grandparent" you can adopt for this project.

In the next volunteer activity, send smiles over phone lines in a friendly chat with those in need.
