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.

Food Pantry Shout Out
July 6, 2017
We are halfway through the year, and I want to take the opportunity to give our Food Pantry staff and all of the individuals that have volunteered so far this year a shout out for their incredible job fighting food insecurity in South Dallas. During the first six months of 2017, we have distributed more than 1 MILLION pounds of food together. We would not be able to do this if it wasn’t for the continued assistance and support from our community and volunteers.
As you know, CitySquare fights the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy and friendship. The Food Pantry is one of the programs in our organization that allow our volunteers and neighbors to connect and learn from each other. Let’s keep up the good work by continuing to lend a hand to our neighbors and build bridges through the friendships we create. If you want to be a part of our Food Pantry volunteer team, please complete our volunteer application.
