Are you itching to get outside in this beautiful spring weather and socialize safely? Orcas Senior Center will have the perfect opportunity for you on Sunday, May 2, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. We need help cleaning up our grounds, and will be weeding, raking, deadheading, trimming, and much more. Bring your gardening tools, come on by for all or part of the time, and help us make our grounds beautiful again! Snacks, sandwiches, and water will be provided by the Tea Ladies. Work gloves, masks, and social distancing required. Please leave your power tools at home. For more information, call 360-919-9312 or email admin@orcasseniors.org. All are welcome!

Be A Buddy

Orcas Senior Center was selected to participate in the 2021 OICF GiveOrcas fundraising campaign, May 3-17. With your help, OSC will raise $19,000 and contribute up to $6,000 in matching funds so that isolated seniors can receive “check-in” phone calls from “Buddies” affirming their welfare and safety.

Long after current health and safety restrictions have passed and emergency operations have stood down, the needs of isolated and vulnerable seniors will remain. OSC’s successful Buddy Check-In program will stand in the gap, providing support by telephone and making sure health, safety and supply needs are met.

Please support OSC’s Buddy Check-In and Companion Services! Help us meet increasing demand from isolated seniors for companionship, hope, and critical services. Every $2 donation earns an additional $1 matching contribution up to $6,000. Help us continue providing this vital support system and keep seniors safe.
