Hey, what are you doing January 29? How about meeting me at the Renton Senior Activity Center where I’ll be lending a hand from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m., doing my part to contribute to the Seattle Times Fund for the Needy. Now in its 30th year, the Seattle Times annual fundraiser benefits 13 local, non-profit agencies — Senior Services among them.
Together we’ll chat with Southend seniors, serve lunch, work in the coffee shop and assist with administrative tasks. The center can accommodate only 25 volunteers, so the first to answer the call via Twtvite (it’s like Evite, only tweetier) are in. I’ll be sending out a link to the invitation in a bit on my Twitter feed, so stay tuned.
It’s about time I met some of you in person, don’t you think? And I love the idea of my Twitter community helping me help area seniors. What’s more, I’m thinking that after, I might finally get my chance to check Uwajimaya’s new Renton location, open since July. (You in?)
