All volunteers will receive a free ticket to the 7:05 p.m. game, during which the Nationals will face off against the Cincinnati Reds.
Volunteers will meet at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza at the corner of of 14th Street and Park Road NW for a quick orientation at 5:00pm before heading to the Georgia Avenue, Columbia Heights, U Street or Shaw Metro stations to pick up a senior.
“We’re telling seniors that they can come to any of those Metro stops,” says Tom Fazzini, spokesperson for Nadeau’s office. “They will be able to meet a volunteer of ours there, and then the volunteer will escort them to the ballpark.”
After the game is over, volunteers will lead the seniors back home.
Nadeau’s office is urging those who want to volunteer or seniors who want to attend the game to sign up online.
