Meet Volunteer Larry Schwab

Larry Schwab has been a Stop ‘N Shop volunteer for three years, helping us transport unsellable items to other nonprofit charities. We’re so grateful for Larry’s help—it has been hard to fill this essential role because it requires heavy lifting and a large vehicle.

Even when he had some serious medical issues, Larry has remained consistent and reliable in his support of the Senior Center’s thrift store. We can tell that it’s important to Larry that he spends time helping others.

Originally from Bismark, North Dakota, Larry has lived in West Seattle since 1975. He really enjoys art and music, and Larry plays the guitar, piano and harmonica.

He also has a small landscape maintenance business. He’s a friendly guy, and many of his clients are members of the Senior Center, so some of you may already know him!
