Key Volunteers Needed at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center

Volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day activity that goes on at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center. Over 200 volunteers help with regular daily needs or in periodic help: from the receptionists at the Front Desk to the person who donates cookies at our Holiday Bazaar Bake Sale. The following areas are needing help:

The Thrift Shop needs more volunteers, especially on Tuesday afternoons. The shop is one of the biggest fund raisers for the center, earning close to $30,000 this past year. Many people in the community are finding that this is the place to find great bargains. Shop volunteers serve as clerks, help stock the shelves and racks, help with pricing while having contact with the customers. The volunteers generally work a half day, one day a week. Sadly, many of the Tuesday volunteers are having to deal with isssues that keep them from coming to help. Help is appreciated for any day, of course.

To volunteer please contact the Shop Manager Judith Enich, Mondays or Fridays, 9:30am-3:30pm at 206-365-1536. If Judith is unavailable please contact Judy Parsons or Jon Ann Cruver at 206-365-1536.

The Front Desk Receptionists are at the heart of the senior center; they greet everyone who walks in the door and provide service that ranges from giving tours to those new to the center, to making appointments, answering the phone, and much more. These volunteers work a 4 hour shift, one day a week. To volunteer for this position please contact Marilyn Yeider at 206-365-1536, 8:30AM to 12:30PM daily.

The Kitchen has become a very busy place during our daily lunch program, due to the efforts of our chef, Janice Bellotti-Pace. Kitchen volunteers may work one day a week for about 3 hours per shift by helping prep for the lunch program. A Food Handlers permit is required but can be obtained on-line or through classes offered by the Senior Services nutrition department. Contact Chef Janice at 206-365-1536 to volunteer. She is also looking for volunteers to help with prep work for Kitchen Corner Catering, a fund raising program for the senior center. Volunteer commitment for the catering program will vary according to the schedule.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is located on the Shoreline Center campus: 18560 1st Ave NE, #1, Shoreline; 206-365-1536.
