Families from the community will join together in a hands-on service project at the Lubbock Dream Center next Saturday, February 23 from 8:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. as part of the From the Heart volunteering program. From the Heart is a Volunteer Center of Lubbock program focused on family volunteering and encouraging children, ages 12 and under, to make a difference in their community. For this project, families will pack groceries at the Lubbock Dream Center’s food pantry and pass food out to people in need.

"This project gives families an opportunity to spend time together, while still giving back to the community," said VCL Youth Volunteerism Coordinator Lisa Stratton. "We want our family volunteers to have both a fun and rewarding experience!"

From the Heart service projects will also occur throughout spring break, April 13, April 27, and May 18. To find out more about projects or to register, contact Lisa Stratton at (806) 747-0551 or lstratton@volunteerlubbock.org.

Members of the community can also visit www.volunteerlubbock.org and click Volunteer Connection to create a volunteer account and register for opportunities online.

The Volunteer Center of Lubbock connects, empowers, and transforms the community through purposeful volunteerism and leadership development. Last year the Center’s efforts impacted more than 31,000 people within our community. The Volunteer Center of Lubbock is a Lubbock Area United Way community partner.
