We Miss Our Volunteers!!!
In 2019, 4,792 Volunteers served over 31,000 hours at Dallas LIFE.
In the first quarter of 2020, 1214 Volunteers served over 5,300 hours until the Covid-19 crisis.
From intake volunteers to Chapel speakers, barbers, classroom speakers, mentors, office helpers, game day hosts for seniors, meal servers, donation sorters, and children’s program volunteers, YOU ARE ALL missing during this crisis and we feel it. Our volunteers are families, friends, churches, neighborhood groups, corporations and Dallas businesses. You all make a difference, and we feel the difference when you can’t be right here with us. We cannot wait to see you in person after this crisis passes. Even though our volunteers cannot serve on-site at Dallas LIFE, we know they can safely #ServeAtHome. We still need each and every one of you!
Challenge 10 to Give 10
Join our #ServeAtHome Challenge! Give just $10 and challenge your friends on social media to give $10 too! For the cost of two specialty coffees, you can give $10 but magnify that gift by challenging your friends to join you in giving $10. With the ripple effect, each person’s gift can spark another gift to significantly impact the homeless for the better!
