Village Driver Volunteer & Member
A Village driving volunteer gives a Village member a ride.

Help seniors in North-Northwest Seattle by helping with yardwork and chores, driving them to appointments, walking the dog, and checking in. Aside from getting to help Gramma, the beauty of this volunteer gig is the flexibility - you get to select which opportunities work for you.

Volunteers are thoroughly vetted so you can help our members on-on-one, and in usual-times in the member’s home. In light of physical distancing mandates, and reducing the risks to both our members and volunteers, volunteers must be healthy to serve, and include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Yardwork
  • Drive senior to a doctor's appointment.
  • Take garbage or recycling bin to the curb.
  • Grocery shop, pick up groceries ordered online, or pick up prescriptions.
  • Order groceries online for a member.
  • Laundry.
  • Visiting outside in the fresh air (at least 6 feet apart).

Additionally, our intake process has been modified during this time of distancing. All in-person volunteer trainings are postponed until further notice.
