Covington neighbors: Help Isolated Seniors with Grocery Shopping

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

groceries

Volunteer Services is looking for volunteers to help isolated seniors with grocery shopping at grocery stores or food pantries. Many of your neighbors who are older adults, or adults living with disabilities and chronic health conditions are unable to get to/from the grocery store. They could use your help to ensure they have enough food in their home.

A little background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income older adults and adults 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.
