ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

VS Logo

There are seniors waiting for rides in every area of King County. Many are not able to get to the doctor frequently enough due to lack of transportation and things like carrying groceries on the bus or shuttle can be almost impossible. Improve the health and social life for a senior in your community by taking them to doctor appointments or delivering their groceries and medications. 1-4 hours a month is a game-changer for many seniors. Mileage reimbursement included for medical transportation! On-call opportunities are available!

Background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income elders and persons living with disabilities. Volunteers can provide assistance with light housecleaning, transportation, grocery shopping, home repair, and yard care. With a little help from volunteers, clients can continue to live independently in their homes.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, volunteers must complete an application form, pass a Washington State Patrol check and attend an orientation.
