Kerrie Carbary sent us this local volunteer opportunity. (Anyone have other volunteer opportunities on Beacon Hill? Let us know.)
“Would you like to spend a few hours a month with a friendly, energetic, and charming 86 year old woman? You can make a difference in her life by helping her with light housekeeping and easy yardwork. She loves her garden and keeps a beautiful home, but finds herself unable to bend easily to mop, vacuum, and mow the lawn. Sheâ€™s very independent and still feels comfortable driving, going out to lunch, and meeting with friends, but has decided she could use a bit of extra help in her home. Sheâ€™d really prefer someone who can visit her during the weekday. Sheâ€™d prefer a female volunteer and lives in zip code 98108 (Beacon Hill).”
This volunteer opportunity is through Volunteer Chore Services, a program of Catholic Community Services. Volunteers must complete a registration packet, provide three personal references, pass a background check, and attend an orientation.
