SERVE AT THE CORNERSTONE CLOTHES CLOSET – FOURTH SATURDAY OF EVERY MONTH
This is a great opportunity for us to work with the individuals and develop deeper relationships with the people of the South Dallas community, as well as for your students to gain required volunteer hours. Just like our GPS volunteers at the Christmas Store, you will accompany people through the Cornerstone Clothes Closet and help them select clothing while you develop a friendship with them. Volunteers also clean and organize the Clothes Closet, wash and fold towels, and clean the shower area. Children ages 6 and over are welcome to help.
The Clothes Closet is located at 2711 S. Ervay Street, at the corner of Ervay and Al Lipscomb Way. Volunteering will last from approximately 10:00 am–1:00 pm. We meet at VRBC at 9:15 am to caravan down to Cornerstone, or you can meet us there at 10:00 am. This is a terrific chance to touch lives and also learn from those we serve!
