Volunteering is fun and rewarding, and life at Green Meadows offers abundant opportunities to connect with and serve your community.


For example, the city of Celina has a lot of volunteer opportunities for ages 16 and up. One fun way to get involved and meet new people is to work at a city-hosted event, such as Celina Cajun Fest, Music on the Square, Friday Night Market, and Movie Night on the Square. The city also hosts holiday events for Independence Day, Halloween, and Christmas, as well as Celina Oktoberfest and the Troubadour Festival. Learn more about the different events throughout the year by visiting www.lifeincelinatx.com/events.

The Celina Police Department and Celina Public Library also need volunteers. Visit Celina Police Department | Celina, TX - Life Connected (Celina-tx.gov) and Celina Public Library | Celina, TX - Life Connected (Celina-tx.gov) for more information or to volunteer.


Suppose you want to get to know the city and individual departments before choosing your volunteer opportunity. In that case, you can attend academies that teach you about the police, fire, and city government. Your experience may provide a solid foundation for future community involvement. Visit Community Services | Celina, TX - Life Connected (Celina-tx.gov) to learn more or sign up.


Additionally, several other organizations also need volunteers to complete their community missions. If you want to help your neighbors in need, volunteer at Cornerstone NCT, where you can help at the resale shop with administrative tasks such as data entry and social media, case management, mentoring, budget accountability, and employment assistance. You may also assist with planning and working at special events that raise money for the cause. Go to Explore Our Volunteer Opportunities — Cornerstone NCT to find out more or sign up.


Do you love animals and want to help those in the local animal shelter? Then you may like to volunteer for Collin County Animal Services Community Service. They need help with everything seven days a week. Visit Animal Services (collincountytx.gov) for information on how to give your time to help animals in need.


The Rotary Club of Preston Trail of Celina and Gunter also needs volunteers to help feed the hungry, tutor children, maintain parks, and more. The Rotary analyzes local issues to identify areas of need, then applies expertise and diverse perspectives to each problem. You may be part of this community-oriented volunteer group by contacting the club at Send Email to KJ Clark | Rotary Club of Preston Trail (rotarycelina.org). Or visit Volunteer | Rotary Club of Preston Trail (rotarycelina.org) for more information.


Another possibility is Grace Bridge. You can help collect, organize, and distribute food or work at the resale shop or special events. Grace Bridge focuses on connecting the faith-based community, school districts, corporate entities, and local principalities to make a lasting difference in the community. To join the connection, visit Volunteer — Grace Bridge or email volunteer@gracebridge.us


If you want to use your skills to help others or learn new ones while serving the community, volunteer for Helping Hands of Celina. You can join a team of hands who support children, families, teachers, and at-risk youth to improve their lives. Their core programs include Campus Closet, which helps school children with everyday essential needs, and Adopt a Teacher, which provides financial assistance for classroom expenses. Some other past projects include fence repair, painting, and aid for adoptive/foster families and single parents. Visit Volunteer - Helping Hands of Celina to volunteer.


Finally, you can help change everything for many of the lives in your community by volunteering through VolunteerNow. You can give your time to help local schools, food banks, women’s missions, dog training for those with disabilities, and more.
