Volunteer Opportunities

Helping another person brings a wonderful feeling of joy and satisfaction. At Catholic Community Services, volunteers help elderly and disabled persons remain living independently in their own homes. They also serve food to the hungry, tutor youth struggling in school, assist the staff of CCS day care and early learning centers, and do much, much more!

CCS volunteers come from all segments of the population. Many are fully employed; others are homemakers, young people and retired persons. All bring a gift of caring and time. “Being a volunteer is truly one of the greatest gifts of my life,” says Al Jackson, of Volunteer Services.

CCS offers a variety of opportunities to help others, arranged to accommodate volunteers’ schedules. Call today!

Drivers (Pierce County)

Categories: Pierce County, Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Chore Services desperately needs volunteer drivers to take low-income elderly clients to doctor appointments. These clients have no other way to get to their appointments; they either do not qualify for other programs, are not able to take the bus or live off the bus route. Please help us get these folks the medical attention they need! Drivers use their own cars and receive mileage reimbursement. Rides are dispatched by our staff and clear directions are given. Drive weekly or daily; whatever fits your schedule. Must have a valid WA drivers license and clean driving record, and will undergo a WA State Patrol background check.
