Seven TIAA volunteers boarded a Senior Source van on February 13 heading to our latest Community Involvement volunteer event – the Crossroads Community Services facility located in downtown Dallas. We have volunteered for CCS over the past several years and always have been received warmly by the CCS staff. We served over 50 clients helping them to select gently used clothing as well as nutritious canned, boxed, frozen, and fresh fruits & vegetables for their families’ monthly needs. Everyone enjoyed making a difference in the lives of the CCS clients and watching as they left CCS thanking us for all that we did for them.
Crossroads’ primary goal is to ensure that all people in Dallas County have ready access to nourishing foods. A secondary goal is to provide life skills education that can help clients accomplish goals that are important to them. Crossroads provides clothing to in-house pantry clients as well as clients from The Stewpot. And, Crossroads partners with educational and medical institutions in Dallas County in order to seek more holistic solutions to deeply entrenched social and economic problems. CCS is always looking for volunteers during the weekdays. Please consider signing up for a day or more by registering at this link: CCS Volunteer
