The Volunteer McKinney Center (VMC) invites members of the public to roll up their sleeves and help area non-profit organizations with volunteer needs. 

Volunteer Opportunities for The Upcoming Week:

  • MADD needs volunteers

MADD’s mission is to stop drunk driving, support victims of drunk driving, and prevent underage drinking. The keys to solving the problem of drunk driving include volunteers who speak to community groups (law enforcement, hospitals, funeral homes, etc.) about MADD’s mission, and volunteers who perform various administrative tasks (directing phone calls, preparing information packets, etc.) to help provide victim services. If you can help MADD with either of these efforts, click on Volunteer Opportunities on the Volunteer McKinney website, then click on “Community Outreach.”

  • Care Calls 

Meals on Wheels, an agency that combats isolation and promotes the health, dignity and independence of those 60 years or older, is seeking a Client Liaison to conduct well-check calls to clients once weekly between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Mondays or Fridays.

For information about the application and required background check, look for “Care Call Program” on the Volunteer Opportunities page of the Volunteer McKinney website.

  • Meals for Seniors

You can assist the homebound and elderly in our community by helping assemble shelf-stable meals. Volunteers can spend two hours having fun on Monday, Tuesday, or Friday and make a huge difference in the lives of local seniors. Children 9 years and older with a chaperone may participate. Just contact the Meals on Wheels office to schedule a time. Use Keywords “Game On” on the Volunteer McKinney website for contact information.
