Volunteer Services (VS) with Catholic Community Services (CCS) are in great need of more volunteers to help cut up hunks of trees at various spots throughout Mason and Thurston counties to be hauled to our wood banks. VS has two wood banks, one in Shelton and one in Olympia, at private locations. Every year we work hard to allocate donated firewood (or hunks of trees to saw up into firewood sized pieces!), resupply our wood banks, and then in the cold months deliver emergency loads of firewood to low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who rely on firewood as their primary source of heat throughout Mason, Thurston, and Lewis counties.

Having a truck to haul wood and/or tools to cut up wood are greatly recommended.

Make a difference in someone's life and bring the gift of warmth! Volunteer as little or as often as you'd like and where you'd like. Even what may seem like the littlest bit of volunteering can impact someone's ability to live safely and independently in their own home!

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.
