Full Life Care’s Partnership with United Way of King County Was a Success!

BECU Volunteers

BECU VolunteersMartin Luther King Jr. Day of Service has long been recognized as time to give back, in the spirit of Dr. King’s famous words reminding us that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ “

But this year, what began as a call to action for a single day of service, turned into a tremendous outpouring of support throughout the month of January. 

Over 100 volunteers were inspired to create over 300 inspirational greeting cards in support of the  ElderFriends program’s mission to relive loneliness and isolation experienced by older adults in King County. 

And the impact didn’t stop there.

Inspired by its partnership with United Way of King County to “create spaces of transformation instead of just a transaction,” Full Life Care engaged over 60 of the total volunteers in a series of 5 discussion to think beyond their single act of service and reflect on ageism: how we can better understand and combat stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination impacting older adults in our society.

We are grateful for all our volunteers, including group participation from:
