Our Mission: We remove barriers to health with relentless compassion so that no one faces illness and injustice alone.

Our Vision: Health For All


Making an impact in your community is easier than you think! Help deliver nutritious, culturally appropriate groceries and medically-tailored meals from the Chicken Soup Brigade to our clients who are home-bound and/or living with serious illnesses.

Volunteer drivers are the heart and soul of our food program, delivering thousands of bags of groceries as well as medically-tailored meals each week to our clients. Routes take 60-90 minutes to complete (including picking up the food from our home base in Georgetown), you will deliver to around 6-8 clients per route, and we can try to find a route near where you live to save driving time and help you build connections within your community.

We are currently looking for support Monday through Friday across King and Snohomish Counties.

  • Monday - Rainier Beach, Rainier View, Rainier Valley, Tukwila/SeaTac/Des Moines
  • Tuesday - Queen Anne, Burien, Boulevard Park (south of South Park), Magnolia/Interbay
  • Wednesday - Shoreline, Lynnwood, Kenmore
  • Thursday - Capitol Hill, Central Distict, Bellevue, Issaquah
  • Friday - Federal Way, Kent, Renton, Auburn
  • (OR sign up to be a backup driver! No weekly commitment; we'll reach out as needed)

Pickup Time/Location: We can generally accommodate pickups from our warehouse in Georgetown Monday-Friday from 9am - 3pm (Tuesday hours: 12pm-3pm). We also have satellite pickup locations in Bellevue, Auburn, and Everett on certain days of the week to reduce your driving time if you live close to those areas. Please ask us about those if you're interested!

Commitment: 1 shift per week for at least 3 months (OK to take time off for vacations and other commitments. Just make sure those dates are communicated to us!)

Qualifications: Must be 18 years old or older, have a driver’s license, and a reliable vehicle with proof of insurance. Must be vaccinated for COVID-19. Training for the role is provided.

From compassion to action - volunteer with us today!

About Lifelong

Location:

Mission Statement

We remove barriers to health with relentless compassion so that no one faces illness and injustice alone.

Description

LIFELONG HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ORGANIZATION THAT STANDS UP FOR COMMUNITIES FACING ILLNESS AND INJUSTICE.

Everyone deserves the chance to live their healthiest life, but that vision is out of reach for far too many people. For nearly 40 years, Lifelong has fought for marginalized communities with relentless compassion-because no one should have to battle stigma, judgment, or the devastating effects of illness alone. Our wraparound care model supports the whole person by breaking down barriers and improving access to nutritious food, stable housing, and vital health resources for people living with diabetes, HIV, kidney disease, and other life-challenging illnesses. Our community support network fills the gaps in broken systems and ensures that everyone has an equitable opportunity to thrive.
