New! Volunteer Opportunities

Kitchen Helpers: If seeing people fed a nourishing meal is something that makes you feel good- be part of a the kitchen volunteers and help make it happen!  Your help could be just one day for 4 hours.  Check with our Chef to see how you can help.  The best time to call is early morning or after 1:00 pm; or call at (206) 365-1536 and we can connect you to the kitchen.

More Opportunities!
Email Jon Ann or Judy or call (206) 365-1536 to find out more on how to volunteer at your Senior Center.

Bargain Corner

Come be part of the magic in our Bargain Corner Thrift Store!  It's a hoot to see the smiles of all of our customers who find that special treasure, a beautiful sweater or fall in love with something they never dreamed they needed.  Only 4 hours one day a week would be a huge help.  Call Store Manager, Gina Boetes, at (206) 365-1536 or see her for more information on Mondays, Thursdays, or Fridays.

Front Desk Receptionists

Help wanted!  Volunteer for this “heart of the Center” position. Half day shifts, morning or afternoon.  Our volunteers enjoy meeting the public, answering phone calls, handling money and helping the public and participants with questions concerning the Center's program and activities.  Please contact Administrative Assistant, Marilyn Yeider, at (206) 365-1536 in the mornings for more information.

Van Drivers Always Needed!

Can you or someone you know help?  For some of our participants, the only way they can get to the Senior Center is via our Hyde Shuttle Service.  Help us to continue making sure they have transportation by volunteering to drive our van.  All you need is a regular driver's license.  No special license required.

Time commitment: a half-day or full day, once a week, morning, afternoon, it's pretty much up to you and your schedule.

Call Jon Ann or Judy at (206) 365-1536 or Valerie at (206) 727-6295 to volunteer and get more information.
