Volunteer Opps: Big Brothers and Sisters, Chestnut Square, Home Supplies

Volunteer McKinney Center presents this week’s chances to help out:

–Big Brothers, Big Sisters Mentor. Many children need a friend they can talk to, hang out with, have fun with, and just spend time with. Volunteers who are Big
Brothers and Big Sisters are people who share their lives with a Little Brother or Little Sister and are willing to listen and learn. The agency provides support for
the child, the parents or guardians, and the mentor. If you can share a few hours of your time, 2 – 4 hours a month, go to the VMC website and use Keywords “Big Brother” to find out how to apply.

–Maintain the beauty of McKinney’s history. Chestnut Square Historical
Village has items that need polishing and dusting to keep them attractive for visitors. The volunteers may also assist in staging and decorating the houses for special events or exhibits. This is an opportunity for you and some of your friends to spend quality time maintaining McKinney’s unique history. For more information, use Keywords “Chestnut Square” on the VMC website, then click on “Museum Collection Maintenance.”

–Donation of Home Supplies. Emily’s Place provides a bridge from domestic abuse shelters to self-sufficiency for victim of domestic violence.
