Northshore Senior Center has an employment office, run by volunteers, offering help to seniors. We are in need of people willing to help seniors especially handyman type services, yard work, gardening and weeding. Other opportunities are also available to you. This is how our program works. Our volunteers at the Employment Office at Northshore Senior Center get calls daily asking for help. We find one of our senior employees who’s a good match for what the client is needing assistance with, then we give you a call to see if you’re interested. If you are, you call the client, discuss the job, negotiate a fee and get the job. Both our clients, and people willing to help, undergo background checks that are free to each person. You can set your hours for ones that will suit each of you. Our Employment Office volunteers are available Monday through Friday, 9am-noon at Northshore Senior Center, 10201 East Riverside Dr., Bothell. Stop in or call 425-286-1028 for more information. Help yourself to extra monies and help our seniors needing help.
