How many volunteers does it take to change a light bulb? One. Imagine if you were sitting in a wheel chair and your overhead kitchen light went out. Who are you going to call? Volunteer Chore Services receives frequent requests for help with everything and the kitchen sink from Pierce County's low-income elders and disabled adults. Can you paint a wall? Clean a gutter? Fix a clogged sink? Replace a faucet? Build a ramp? Repair appliances? Wash windows? Make a difference in someone's life...it only takes a few hours a month!
