Volunteer Hub

Hi there! I’m Sandra Ostad, CitySquare’s Volunteer Coordinator. Did you know CitySquare requires a minimum of 40 volunteers a day to fight poverty in Dallas? To get involved as a volunteer, sign up to attend one of our upcoming Volunteering 101 courses. Once you’ve completed the course, you can check back here for volunteer updates. Don’t see what you need on this page? Feel free to contact me at 214.303.2146 or SOstad@CitySquare.org with any questions.

Fall at the Square: A busy season
October 20, 2017

Fall is officially here and it is going to be a busy one at the Square. Del Frisco’s 4th annual 5K is this Saturday, October 21th, and I would love to see you there.

You can sign up to run, or if you need an excuse to get your steps in, walk the 5K with your friends. There will also be a 1-mile kids fun run for your youngest family members. For your friends and family members that don’t like to run, there is a VIP brunch at the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in Uptown, the start/finish of the race. No matter how you participate, all the proceeds benefit CitySquare. Click here for more information and to register.

We are thrilled to offer two new Saturday opportunities to learn and serve with CitySquare! Pantry Prep and CitySquare 101 will launch Saturday, October 28th. Pantry Prep includes a tour and service project at the Food Pantry. If you are looking for an opportunity to learn about what poverty looks like in Dallas and how you can join the fight, CitySquare 101 is for you. We hope to see you there.

The Food Pantry is not the only program that will need more volunteers this fall. WorkPaths, our job-training program, is also expanding. The first opportunity to get involved is in two weeks during our new 3 day Catering Program. We need volunteers to help out in the classroom and no experience is needed. For more information contact Sandra Ostad at sostad@CitySquare.org.

Thank you for your continuous support and involvement with CitySquare. I hope to see you this fall.

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Check with your HR department to see if your company offers these programs.
