TRUCK ASSISTANTS FOR NON-PROFIT - Age 55 and over

Save to Favorites

Lutheran Community Services

Truck Assistants - Tues-Sat 8:45-2:30 (hours may vary)

This non-profit promotes self-sufficiency for those who struggle with basic furniture needs. They turn an empty house into a home by providing the basics like: a bed to sleep in, table and chairs to eat at, sofas to relax on, pots & pans to cook with and towels for bathing.

Truck assistants go out on trucks with staff to deliver furniture to clients’ homes and pick-up

donations from residential donors. They are the last leg in the relay of fulfilling a client’s furniture

request and play a role in keeping our warehouse stocked with incoming donations. They work closely

with staff, clients and donors. 3 - 4 hours each shift, once a week, or more if you wish.

  • Heavy lifting required
  • Schedule flexibility required
  • Packing water and a snack advised
  • Work clothes

INFORMATION ABOUT RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) Age 55 and older

Are you 55 years of age or older? Would you like to make an impact and improve your community? Then you are a perfect candidate for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)!

RSVP is a part of a national network of programs called "Senior Corps" that recruits adults 55 and older to use their talents and life experience to help meet community needs through volunteer service. The focus of RSVP is to incorporate meaningful volunteer opportunities that provide purpose and a way to give back to the community.

Did you know that volunteers live longer? And there are health benefits of being needed and appreciated, and you have the opportunity to try new things and meet new people.

By joining this program, you become part of a national Senior Corp movement of hundreds of thousands of volunteers striving to help their communities.

We have a yearly recognition luncheon and a gift for everyone who is a member of RSVP. We also hold smaller events, such as ice cream socials and coffee and pastries throughout the year to celebrate YOU and the contribution of your time and dedication to helping your community.

RSVP is sponsored by Lutheran Community Services Northwest, a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the people it serves.

INTERESTED or have questions? Please email or call and we will mail or email an RSVP application for you to complete.
