Texas has a great tradition of volunteerism. Thousands of Texans in hundreds of community organizations and faith based groups in large and small communities across the state of Texas have played a crucial part in the safety and survival of their fellow Texans during disasters and emergencies.
From small groups of volunteers handing out blankets and coffee after an apartment building fire to the hundreds of volunteers serving tens of thousands of meals in an area devastated by a hurricane – Texas volunteers always make a difference.
Trained volunteers are absolutely essential to the ability of Texas to take care of its own when the worst occurs.
Training as a volunteer can help you, your family and your community as well.
