Volunteering can you help you stay active, teach you new skills, and even expand your network.
If you’re considering volunteering, here are a few ideas that may be right for you:
VNA Meals on Wheels
VNA Meals on Wheels provides hot, nutritious dishes to Dallas County residents five days a week. These residents cannot prepare food for themselves due to illness, disability, or advanced age, and the meals contribute to their overall health.
VNA has expanded from serving 125 meals a day in 1973 to nearly 5,700 meals today. Drivers are always needed, and the hours are flexible Monday through Friday between 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. All it takes is a lunch break to make a difference.
Humane Society of Dallas County
The Humane Society of Dallas County is a no kill shelter that has helped save abandoned animals for over 25 years. Its mission is to provide a safe and healthy environment until the cats and dogs find loving forever homes.
The shelter greatly depends on volunteers, and one of the opportunities includes dog socializer. A socializer helps with walks, playtime, and basic grooming including occasional baths.
Established in 1888, the Dallas Zoo has welcomed visitors for generations. The zoo was the first attraction of its type in the southwest, and it has called the Oak Cliff neighborhood home since 1912.
The zoo is always looking for Animal Nutrition Center volunteers. This exciting opportunity includes assisting the zoo’s nutritionist prepare the animals’ meals. It’s a unique way to participate in the feeding routine and other general behind-the-scenes tasks. These volunteers must commit to one morning shift per week.
