Volunteer McKinney offers several opportunities this week.
• Butterfly Garden Design. Vega Elementary has the perfect place to build a butterfly garden but needs a landscape architect to help with its design. To volunteer for this one-time opportunity, go to www.mckinneyisd.net/parents/volunteer/ or look for “Landscape Design . . .” on the Volunteer Opportunities page of the Volunteer McKinney web site.
• Advocate for Hispanic Victims of Impaired Driving. Bilingual volunteers are needed to develop educational programs to advocate for Hispanic victims of impaired driving. These volunteers might speak to community groups about preventing underage drinking or attend court with victims of impaired driving. Orientation and training is provided free of charge. Select How to Volunteer, then click on the link to volunteer
opportunities. Then select More Updated Listings and look for “Hispanic Court and Victim Advocate.”
• Gala Fundraiser. The Chrysalis Gala, scheduled for October 20, 2012, is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County. Thirty volunteers are needed the morning of the event to help set up for the evening auction. Shifts are 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers will help display and stage auction items. During the event, a volunteer photographer’s assistant is needed to collect
