Volunteering and staying active in your local community is a great way to stay involved, learn new skills, and promote awareness when disaster strikes. There are dozens of organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to help you stay involved.
Volunteering in Coppell
The City of Coppell recognizes and welcomes the extraordinary value volunteers bring to the public stewardship, citizen engagement, and expanded resources of programs, projects, events, and activities. There are volunteer opportunities available in a variety of interest areas, schedules, and activities. Your time and commitment to the community are important, and helping you find the best fit for your volunteer requirements is the road to successful connections. This is the premise for the Coppell Connections portal, which matches both adult and youth volunteers to opportunities that match their interests. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, visit the Coppell Volunteer page.
Formerly the Volunteer Center of North Texas, Volunteer Now serves as the hub of volunteerism in North Texas. This organization provides 24/7 connection between volunteers and local service opportunities, and offers a wide range of programs and services that build capacity for local nonprofits.
Dallas County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)
Handled by the Dallas County Health Department, this group consists of medical and non-medical personnel that are deployed during emergencies and disasters. They assist with services such as mass vaccinations and medical needs during sheltering operations.
American Red Cross
The American Red Cross offers several volunteer opportunities-from training to be ready to respond to disasters, to supporting a blood drive, from delivering messages to their U.S. service personnel, to connecting families displaced by disasters or conflicts with aid organizations.
Fostered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the mission of CNCS and AmeriCorps is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and encourage civic engagement through service and volunteering. The VISTA project (Volunteers In Service To America) of North Texas focuses on building the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities.
