The City of Richardson’s Volunteer Assistance Program’s web page has a new feature that makes it easier for residents to connect with volunteer opportunities.

The web page now has a listing of all projects that users can sort by type of work in addition to looking at photos of each project.

“I think residents like to sign up and volunteer in order to give back to their community. It’s really big here in Richardson, the other thing is residents want to see an impact in their own neighborhood,” said Lindsay Turman, Community Service Administrator.

Volunteers who participate in the program come from all walks of life from high school and college students to retirees who all work to improve the community. Not only do they enrich their lives, but volunteers are helping to enrich the lives of others.
