Volunteer Opportunities in Your Community

If you’re looking for ways to get involved with the community, Timber Creek has several clubs you can join to start giving back to Keller.

Student Council is an organization to join if you want to get more involved in what’s happening around Timber Creek, the Keller Community, and so much more. They are accepting applications through October 1st. Contact Mrs. Cleveland in room N229 if you have any questions. You can also follow the TCHS Student Council Twitter (@TCstu_co) for more upadtes and information.

The Keller community is filled with so many opportunities that are looking for volunteers to give back to their community. If you’re needing hours towards a green cord, or any other school clubs, like Student Council, Interact Club, or NHS, here are a few events you could attend:

The Keller Library uses volunteers for several events year round. You must be 16 years old and fill out a volunteer application. The Library does sign off on community service hours.

The Keller Community Storehouse has an endless amount of volunteer opportunities.  In order to be eligible to volunteer, you must fill out an application (printed or online), read the handbook and sign the agreement form, complete a background check form (there is a $10 fee), and attend a Volunteer Orientation. The Orientation is held the 2 and 4 Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the main office location, 4640 Keller Hicks Rd., Fort Worth Texas. All forms can be found on the Community Storehouse Website. http://www.communitystorehouse.org/volunteer-2/

Local churches, city events, animal shelters, and neighborhood functions are ways to earn volunteer hours as well. Get in touch with the organizations in your community for more information on opportunities like these.
