HandsOn Texarkana: The New Volunteer Center is about service to community through volunteerism.
As a young child, we were all asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Perhaps we answered firefighter, police officer, athlete, teacher, doctor, astronaut, or, even, president. Because, in our young minds, these were the heroes.
It was the actions they undertook everyday, which gave them that status, and made us want to be like them; they are still our heroes today. However, you don’t have to walk into a burning building or wear a badge to rescue someone. You don’t have to go to medical school to help someone feel better, make a touchdown to score points with someone, or, even walk on the moon to help change the earth. To be someone’s hero, all you need to do is volunteer. That’s all! Volunteer yourself, your time, your talents – a little goes a long way, and a lot goes wherever you want it to.
We are fortunate to live in a time of great awakening…we know we have all needed help at one time or another, and we know what it means to give back to our community, this place we call home. We are proud; we are united, and we care about others. These are the qualities that cause a change, and these are the qualities that will sustain us, and see us through tough times.
The needs are great in our community, and there are many volunteer opportunities for you consider here in Texarkana, and the surrounding areas. Please take a moment to explore our website and discover your opportunity – call Kathey at 903-798-3211 for more information. You’ll be glad you did, and, to someone, you, too, will be a hero.
