Meteorologist hosts annual Eastside Friends of Seniors luncheon
October 1, 2013
Jeff Renner, of KING 5 news, hosts the second annual Gathering for Seniors at noon Oct. 11 at the Bellevue Hilton to benefit the activities of Eastside Friends of Seniors.
Eastside Friends of Seniors is a nonprofit organization that began serving seniors in Issaquah and the Sammamish Plateau in 1997 as Faith in Action. The group changed its name in 2011 to reflect its mission and has expanded its free services into Bellevue and the Snoqualmie Valley.
Volunteers from Eastside Friends of Seniors provide rides to medical appointments and help with shopping and routine chores. There are no financial requirements to receive the free assistance, but more than 92 percent of EFS clients are classified as low income. The services of Eastside Friends are available to anybody older than 60 within their area of service.
The luncheon is free and open to all. Donations will be accepted to support the volunteer services provided by the organization. Learn more about volunteer opportunities and make donations at www.eastsidefriendsofseniors.org.
