BOEING RETIREE VOLUNTEERS

Heritage Chapter

The first chapter of Bluebills, organized in 1995, is called the Heritage Chapter.  We offer volunteer and social opportunities to retirees throughout Seattle, South King County, East King County and Pierce County.

As the largest chapter, we have a wide range of activities going on all the time.   In 2012, our members contributed more than 56,000 hours to community causes.  To find out what's going on, we invite you to read our newsletter.

Come Join Us!

We invite Boeing retirees and their spouses to pay us a visit and find out for themselves how personally rich and satisfying retirement can be.

Volunteer Activities

USO Volunteers at the Ski To Sea race

One of the ongoing Heritage Chapter activities is a hardworking group called the Busy B's,

We are a sewing group that meets once a week to make quilts for various organizations such as the Seattle Veterans Hospital, the Washington State Soldiers Home in Orting, the Auburn Child Haven and Seattle Children’s Hospital.  We also do special projects such as making medical dolls for Children’s Hospital and some of our women crochet baby hats and afghans.  The hats go to the Pediatric Interim Center in Kent, Children’s Hospital, and Valley Medical Center.  We donate the afghans to nursing homes.
All year long we collect stuffed animals and at the end of the year give them to area food banks for their Christmas distribution along with crocheted hats and scarves.
All of our quilting fabrics are donated from generous Bluebills, as is the yarn for the crocheted projects.

Volunteers shown working on one of many quilts they produce.

USO volunteers welcomed submariners of the USS OHIO who were flying in from Japan and Houston.

They were greeted with flowers, hugs, smiles, food, beverage, and info at the baggage claim area of their inbound flight.

 

NORTHWEST HARVEST

The Bluebills have a proud tradition of being involved in hunger relief, volunteering at Food Banks, fund raising, donating food and supplies and many other activities.
