February is a good month to start volunteering!
Sponsored by Catholic Community Services, RSVP is Americas largest volunteer network for persons over 55 and the only agency where the collective contribution of the senior volunteer is recorded.
RSVP exists to help volunteers 55 and older find fulfillment in their volunteer work. We match your lifetime of skills and experience to the organization of your choice.
Volunteer opportunities exist all over Snohomish County. No matter where you live we can probably match you with a job.
Have you ever been inconvenienced by lack of personal transportation for a day or two? Imagine life without that luxury. How would you get to the grocery store, the doctor, the dentist? There are people in your neighborhood who live with this situation. Do you have a free morning or afternoon in your schedule? We have clients who could use your help. You must have a clean driving record (a ticket or two won’t stop you), current insurance, working lights, horn and brakes and a desire to help out. Clients enter and exit the vehicle on their own. Mileage reimbursement is provided. You pick when and where you drive. Call or email me to get started.
Food banks in Snohomish County can use someone like you right now. The need to eat never goes away. People are hungry all year around. There are opportunities to volunteer all over the county. Some food banks use drivers to go out into the community and pick up food. All need help inside the food bank with repacking food, assisting clients and so on. No matter where you live a food bank near you needs help. You can get involved in Arlington, Everett (two locations), Lake Stevens, Lynnwood, Marysville (two locations), Mill Creek, Monroe, Mountlake Terrace, Snohomish and Stanwood/Camano.
School is well under way and mentors and coaches are needed. We work with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Snohomish County, the Interfaith Family Homeless Shelter and local schools. All of them need your help for just a few hours a week. A teaching background is not needed for this.
If the world of insurance and regulations seems confusing and arbitrary, consider volunteering with SHIBA. A program of Senior Services of Snohomish County, SHIBA (Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors) provides 30 hours of training so you can assist callers with questions about their rights and options regarding insurance. You help them make an informed decision. The work location is in south Everett.
