Every January, Volunteer McKinney partners with the Collin County Homeless Coalition and several other organizations to participate in the Collin County Homeless Census.
This is an opportunity to survey and county both sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons in our area. The overall county functions as a vital snapshot of the state of homelessness in Collin County and is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
During the evening, volunteers not only conduct surveys, but they provide personal care packages (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, gloves and granola bars) to the homeless individuals and families they meet.
Be sure and register as a volunteer here so you will be notified of volunteer opportunities like this.
