Volunteer Services is looking for folks to help mow lawns and pull weeds in Mason, Lewis, and Thurston Counties! Many of VS clients are elderly and do not have yard care equipment of their own, so being able to bring your own mower and tools would be ideal, but is not mandatory. Come make a difference in someone's life and help clean up a yard! This can help prevent fall risks for folks with mobility issues, and also restore a sense of pride in one's exterior home. Great opportunity for outdoors enthusiasts and those with green thumbs!

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

129 Decatur Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502, US

Mission Statement

We believe every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment We believe the elderly should be able to live with security and dignity. We believe healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities We believe in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable. We believe in joining with others to change systems that oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering. We believe employees and volunteers should work in an environment that fosters respect, teamwork and excellence. We believe in all of these things for all people, whatever their color, whatever language they speak or however they worship.

Description

Our program exists as a safety net for low-income elders and people with disabilities (also low-income)by providing them with services that allow them to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes (not assisted living). For example, a 89 year old woman who only collects $600/mo. in Social Security needs help with her lawn. She can't afford to pay someone, and if her lawn goes a couple of months without being mowed, now the lawn is a fire hazard.
