What Gives? Helping Neighborhood Non-profits

Small ways that you can make a big difference for neighborhood nonprofits

This month, adopt a tree …
… from the Jefferson Median Beautification Project, which planted 18 trees last fall. Now each tree needs a volunteer who can commit to water it once a week. The young trees must be watered without fail. To adopt one, email jeffersonmedian@aol.com or call 214.941.0485.
Or volunteer …
… at the Well Community, the only faith-based provider of mental-health services to low-income people in Dallas. The Well needs volunteers to hang out and play games, drive members to appointments, bring lunches on Tuesday or Thursday, lead prayer or exercise, teach classes, and take on administrative duties. To get involved, contact Joel Pulis at joel@wellcommunity.net or 214.393.5878.
