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.

Senior Services’ Volunteer Transportation program is seeking drivers to shuttle local seniors to medical appointments.
Volunteers pick up seniors at their home, drive them to the doctor and take them back immediately afterward. Many older adults are currently unable to get rides though, because there are not enough volunteers to serve their needs.
