Do you knit, crochet or do other fiber arts? Please consider joining some of your fellow yarn lovers from PNA Village at Fiber Gallery for some chatting and crafting! The group meets every other Monday. We'll be the group sitting at the table, yarn in hand. Fiber Gallery is located at 8212 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA.

Volunteering With The PNA Village

 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the PNA Village!

 

Volunteers provide much of the talent and energy behind the PNA Village. They create a vital network of support for our members who choose to age in place. Many PNA Village members are also volunteers, but you do not need to be a member in order to volunteer with us.

 

We have many different kinds of volunteer opportunities, including transportation, handy work, home safety tasks, gardening, community-building, administrative support, and more.

 

PNA Village Volunteer Update

Attention drivers and individuals with maintenance experience! Village Members have been requesting drivers for business hour appointments, as well as assistance with household repairs. If you are available to drive during the weekday or have experience with minor maintenance and repair jobs, please contact us at village@phinneycenter.org or 206.789.1217 to become a volunteer. If you are already a volunteer and are interested in these openings, please let us know.
