In 1998, several forward-thinking community leaders wanted to establish a volunteer center that would assist citizens in finding local volunteer opportunities and serve as support to local nonprofits and community groups that utilize the power of volunteerism. These leaders saw a willing volunteer base without a central place to find opportunities and an amazing group of service organizations that were in dire need of volunteers. To fill this gap, they formed Volunteer McKinney. Since 1998, Volunteer McKinney has connected volunteers to local nonprofit organizations and has provided assistance to these organizations. Volunteer McKinney has also served this community through community-wide events such as the National “Make a Difference Day”, Collin County Giving Day Party in the Park, Santa on the Square™ and The SPIRIT of McKinney Volunteer Awards, and other events designed to bring nonprofits and the community together.
Volunteer McKinney knows that there is still work to do, and we are committed to help McKinney remain one of the greatest places to live and raise a family. We are moving into a new era at Volunteer McKinney and hope you will join us as we support this community and reach out to others through service in new and exciting ways!
