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 help you get involved, I’ll be posting weekly updates and opportunities here on the CitySquare Volunteer Hub. So take a look around and feel free to contact me at 214.303.2146 or SOstad@CitySquare.org if you need more information.

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.
