In a prior post, I wrote about finding volunteer opportunities for me and the kiddos. I did some searching and found a website called Volunteer Match. This website lets you search for ways to volunteer in your community. It looks to have a large database of volunteer opportunities, not just in the Pacific Northwest.
I am looking for a way to give not just things or fund raise (Movember is almost over), but to give more of ourselves. I know we all hate chores, even the name CHORE sounds daunting. Its not soft and short and musical like the word FUN or FUNNY. But, I can’t imagine not being able to change a light bulb or mop my floor. Not glamorous by any means, but it can make a world of difference to someone. And, my guys are pretty good little helpers around my house. Minor Home Repairs for Elderly and Disabled is something I think we can all get behind. This might actually be doable!

How many volunteers does it take to change a light bulb? One. Imagine if you were sitting in a wheel chair and your overhead kitchen light went out. Who are you going to call? Volunteer Chore Services receives frequent requests for help with everything and the kitchen sink from Pierce County’s low-income elders and disabled adults. Can you paint a wall? Clean a gutter? Fix a clogged sink? Replace a faucet? Build a ramp? Repair appliances? Wash windows? Make a difference in someone’s life…it only takes a few hours a month!
