Nothing is more rewarding than feeding people! Help deliver groceries and medically tailored meals from the Chicken Soup Brigade kitchen and warehouse to our clients battling serious illnesses.

Volunteer delivery drivers are the heart and soul of our food program, delivering thousands of bags of groceries as well as medically tailored meals each year to our clients. You will deliver food to the homes of clients once a week. Routes take 60-90 minutes to complete on average, volunteers deliver to 8 clients and there's no need to return to Lifelong after your route. If you have time in your day or on your way home from work to give back to the community, this opportunity is the one for you.

Commitment: 1 shift/week for 6 months

Qualifications: Must be 16 years old or older, have a driver’s license, and a vehicle with proof of insurance. Training for the role is provided.

From compassion to action. Volunteer with us today!

About Lifelong

Location:

210 S. Lucile Street, SEATTLE, WA 98106, US

Mission Statement

Lifelong is the leading community health organization serving people with chronic illnesses, including cancers, homebound seniors and HIV/AIDS, in Western Washington. We believe all people have a right to a roof over their head, healthy food to eat, and access to affordable healthcare. Lifelong delivers food, housing, and health services; collaborates with community organizations on the prevention and care of chronic disease; and advocates for effective HIV/ AIDS policy. Lifelong's goal is to keep people healthy. Simply put- we make health work.

Description

When a person is living with a chronic illness and faced with financial hardships, getting healthy can be an overwhelming task. This struggle affects people in every corner of our community - from ambitious youth eager to start their lives but struggling to come to terms with their illness to seniors dealing with hunger and isolation.

Until they get back on their feet, we advocate to make sure the amazing people we serve receive what many of us take for granted - food, shelter, insurance, even human interaction.

Here's how we help:

  • For people living with a chronic illness, a nutritious meal can make a huge difference in the struggle for wellness. Our FOOD program, Chicken Soup Brigade, provides nourishment to our clients through its grocery and meal program.
  • When chronically ill people have a stable, safe place to live, they have a significantly better chance at improving their health. At Lifelong, we provide a variety of HOUSING options to create stable living situations for our clients.
  • The HEALTH of our clients is our number one priority. We help our clients get on insurance plans so they can get the care they need. We also focus on HIV prevention and education outreach, and work hard to ensure that funding for programs is maintained at the State and Federal levels.
