Give the Gift of Your Time and Talents at VCC!

At Vashon Community Care we celebrate that “every moment is an opportunity for an extraordinary experience.” There are countless volunteer opportunities here for all ages. We invite you to spend some quality time at VCC with our dear residents. Last year, more than 150 volunteers donated 2,500 hours of precious time to VCC. Their efforts are all truly priceless to our residents and dedicated staff. Also keep in mind that current high school students are eligible to complete their community service hours required for graduation with us at VCC! Our seniors love spending time with the Island’s youth population. We appreciate all of you!
