We’re all spending more time at home these days, so it’s a bit more difficult to lend a hand. One of the great things about the Lone Star State is its great access to many charitable organizations, offering wonderful ways to volunteer from the safety and consideration of home. Here’s just a few of our favorites, all operating just minutes from The Christopher apartments in Dallas, Texas.
DALLAS PETS ALIVE!
Committed to ending euthanasia in North Texas, Dallas Pets Alive! offers resources and education as well as hands-on rescues and aiding in adoptions. Focused on the plight of our furry friends, they helped place nearly 400 animals in loving homes in 2019 alone. You can help their campaign by choosing to give either a one-time donation or a continuing contribution, or by simply utilizing their Amazon Smile link to do a little shopping for yourself.
THE BRIDGE HOMELESS RECOVERY CENTER
For more than ten years, The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center has served the community by giving hope to those caught in the cycle of homelessness. Providing much more than just housing, they also offer tools and training to help displaced individuals gain agency and independence. Prospective helpers can drop off needed items as detailed on their website to their location just minutes from our Dallas, Texas apartments, or take advantage of their offsite volunteer opportunities.
GENESIS WOMEN’S SHELTER & SUPPORT
Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support has been helping women in crisis in the Dallas area for more than 35 years. Working hard to do their part to end domestic violence, they offer a myriad of services to survivors, from long-term housing to counseling services. You can donate monetarily via their website, or you can donate gently used clothing and furniture to their thrift store location.
With these amazing organizations just around the corner, it’s as easy as can be to lend a hand to your neighbor, even in these interesting times.
