Save to Favorites

Volunteer Services

VS Logo

A man with a spinal injury living in Georgetown currently must walk 5 painful blocks to the bus to go to the grocery store. He can get very few items when he goes to the store because he must use a walker. Can you give a few hours a month to ease the burden of this man and shop for him and deliver his groceries? You would make all the difference in his life!

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.
