About Dining Out For Life

Lifelong needs support from people like you at this year’s Dining Out For Life event! More than ever before, our neighbors living with serious and life-challenging illnesses are fighting for their health, but they shouldn’t have to do it alone.

Join us for Dining Out For Life as a Volunteer Ambassador and feed your neighborhood for good on Thursday, September 30 at your favorite participating restaurant!

Role of Volunteer Ambassador

Volunteer Ambassadors are a vital part of the success of Dining Out For Life. Ambassador serve as a representative for Dining Out and Lifelong on the day of the event. Our hope is that as an Ambassador, you can help create the sense of community either in person at a participating restaurant or virtually by spreading the word about the event! Your general duties will include:

· Inviting your network to dine out (or take out!) at their favorite participating restaurant on September 30.

· Answering any questions they might have about Dining Out or Lifelong.

· If in person, distributing donation envelopes to diners at your assigned restaurant.

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.
