Check out the ways Volunteer McKinney Center has listed this week for you to help your community.
Serve Your Community
1. MADD has an opportunity that qualifies for court ordered community service for alcohol specific offenses. Volunteers will perform general office duties such as filing, data input, cleaning, and organizing. Computer and office skills are helpful. There is a $20 fee and dress is business casual.
2. Everyone can participate in the “MADD about you” program to show our law enforcement agencies how much we appreciate them. Deliver prepackaged snacks, cards, or other goodies to local police offices, TABC offices, or other law enforcement agencies to show your appreciation for keeping our
roadways safe. For additional information, go to the Volunteer Opportunities section on the
VMC web site and click on “Community Service for . . .” and “Law Enforcement
Extend a Helping Hand
Community Lifeline Center assists local residents in managing short term crises through financial help, job search training, budget counseling, resource information, etc. To accomplish this goal, the center needs all types of supplies. If you or your group can hold a collection drive, contact the Center for items currently needed. On the VMC web site, click on Agencies, then scroll to Community Lifeline Center.
Drive out Hunger
Meals on Wheels arranges for volunteers to deliver meals to homebound Collin County seniors between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. As little as two hours per month for six months can help ensure that no senior goes hungry. Applicants must be 18 or over with a valid driver’s license and insurance. With over 800 meals per day being delivered, it takes many compassionate, committed volunteers. If you can help, call 972-562-6996, ext. 125.
