Volunteer Chore Services
129 Decatur St NW Olympia, 98502
Volunteer Chore Services helps low-income seniors and disabled adults remain living independently in their own homes for as long as safely possible. Volunteers assist with light housework, yardwork, shopping, move assis- tance, home repairs, communication and monitoring. (Transportation to essential er- rands and medical appointments can be pro- vided by volunteers over the age of 21.) This is a great youth volunteer opportunity for either individuals older than 16 or groups with adult supervision. There is no minimum commitment, and volunteers are matched to clients according to availability.
