April is Richardson’s officially designated Month of Volunteerism. The moniker has been in place since 2012 to encourage and recognize volunteer efforts across the community.

Each year, volunteers spend tens of thousands of hours at events, projects and programs throughout Richardson. To help match residents with volunteer opportunities that best fit them, the City’s website offers a page that highlights some of the volunteer opportunities available in Richardson and provides links and contact information for getting involved. Check with the program in which you’re interested to find out what opportunities they are currently offering.
