“Organizing Superhero” Sought In SeaTac
Got an email from Kerrie Carbary, volunteer coordinator for Volunteer Chore Services in SeaTac, and they’re looking for some help:
Desperately Seeking Organizing Superhero
A disabled woman has recently moved, first from a house to a 3-bedroom apartment, then to a studio apartment!
However, as her space decreased in size, her stuff hasn’t, and as a result she’s having trouble organizing her belongings to fit her new home. Her apartment is very clean, just cluttered.
She has a great sense of humor and is fun to visit with, and needs a volunteer who is patient, gentle and “not bossy.”
The idea of organizing alone adds to her anxiety, which in turn makes her other symptoms worse! Are you a gentle, understanding individual who likes to organize?
An hour a week would make a real difference in her life.
