Brother Bill’s Helping Hand:
More than one out of every three families in West Dallas live below the poverty level.  Among many things, Brother Bill’s Helping Hand runs a grocery store that provides free food to more than 300 families per week.  Come help this organization by restocking the grocery store after a large delivery.
 
Dallas Ramp Project:
Change a person’s life by building a wheelchair ramp for disabled or elderly people who cannot afford to buy one themselves.  In about four hours, you can help give someone the freedom to leave their home again.
Please note:  Due to the nature of this project, volunteers should expect an earlier start time of approximately 7:00 a.m.
 
Nexus Recovery Center:
Nexus offers substance abuse programs for adult women and adolescent girls.  Volunteers at this site will be facilitating an art workshop (music, poetry, and artwork) for girls ages 13-17 to express the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and diversity appreciation.
 
Goodwill Industries of Dallas:
For this project, volunteers will be sorting and processing donations (household goods, computers, electronics, clothing, etc.) in Goodwill’s central processing warehouse.
 
C.C. Young:
At this vibrant non-profit senior living center, volunteers will be playing bingo with residents.  Get ready for some fun!
 
Autism Treatment Center:
There are two hallways at the Center that are in need of painting.  Alongside ATC staff, volunteers will be painting these two hallways to spruce up the space visited frequently by parents and guests.
 
Vickery Meadow Learning Center:
This organization “serves 1,000 adults and 200 young children annually by teaching English literacy skills at no charge in low income, highly diverse neighborhoods” in Dallas.  For these students, learning English increases self-sufficiency and the opportunity for a better life.  Come help clean and stock classrooms to prepare for the start of their Spring semester.
