Make a Meaningful Difference for Seniors in Issaquah and Sammamish
If you are interested in volunteering with seniors in Issaquah or Sammamish, we make it easy to fit volunteering into your schedule. A twice monthly commitment of 1-2 hours is preferred. You can volunteer to provide transportation to a medical appointment or shopping, or with projects that match your interests such as home repair or gardening.
Become Part of Our Family | Your Time Can Change A Life
Volunteers with Eastside Friends of Seniors provide local seniors the dignity they seek and the companionship they deserve. Simple companionship, rides and occasional help with routine errands give seniors the confidence to maintain the dignity of an independent life.
Our team screens each volunteer so you will be matched with a senior who could best benefit from your interests. We also provide any on-going training and resources necessary to enhance your work with the elderly.

Way You Can Help Seniors in Our Community
Transportation to medical appointments
These volunteers are our most urgently needed! Door-through-the-door services from the senior’s home to the health care provider’s office and safely back home again.
*Drivers must be 21+.
Shopping and errands
Not necessarily just a ride – if the clients would like it, help navigating in the store, and/or putting groceries away at home is often appreciated.
Housekeeping, handyman chores, and yardwork.
Friendly Visits – Ending social isolation with your smile
Many clients appreciate visiting with our volunteers. Most of our clients live alone and appreciate the opportunity to visit with a regular visitor in their home and/or phone.
One-time events for School or Service Projects or Internships
Starting with our Board of Directors, we are always looking for volunteers who have skills to support the activities that provide funding to our organization.
Our signature events include SUDS for Seniors and our Annual Luncheon, Enhancing Lives.
