Each school year, we offer a variety of volunteer projects interspersed throughout the year. Some volunteer activities will also include a field trip.

Members of Homeschoolers Hearts and Hugs who participate in volunteer projects are also eligible to register for the Presidential Volunteer Service Award program with Hearts and Hugs being their certifying organization.

When signing up for field trips, volunteer activities or social events please include your FULL NAME, contact information and number of adults and children attending, INCLUDING THEIR AGES. It is very important that you RSVP to ensure you are notified in the event an activity has to be rescheduled. Since the majority of our activities require we confirm the number of participants prior to the event, please abide by sign up deadlines.


"You may be only one person but to one person you may be the world!"




JULY 2017

20th--UNION GOSPEL MISSION, KAUFMAN, TX.

Our group has been made aware of a great volunteer opportunity benefitting Union Gospel Mission in Fort Worth, which offers shelter, life skills classes, job placement and more to the homeless. They also distribute about 120 sack lunches EACH DAY to anyone in need.

That's where we come in. They have an ongoing need for groups to assemble and donate these lunches, but especially so now that school is out.

We will meet at a separate location in Kaufman, TX. to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and assemble the lunches. The coordinator of this project will then deliver the lunches to the UGM-TC in Fort Worth. (no long trip for you!)

Please contact us if this is something your family would be available to help out with. We also need a few people willing to ask at least one place for donations. (I will provide you with the letter from the mission)




NOVEMBER 2017

21st--BUCKNER SHOES FOR ORPHAN SOULS, DALLAS, TX.

This month, we will be volunteering at Buckner Children's Home. Our group will begin with a short orientation and a film about what the organization does. Then we will move to tables where we will remove packaging, pair up, and sort by size into large bins, either donated shoes or socks. Parents will work side by side with their children, so fairly young children are able to participate with a parent's help.

If we sort shoes, we are asked to include a short note of encouragement or a favorite Bible verse. Paper and pencils are provided there, but to save time I like to bring some ready to go.

We are asking that each family please take at least 1 pair of new shoes (ANY SIZE) --or-- a package of new socks to donate. (more if you like!)

FOR SAFETY REASONS - PLEASE BE SURE TO WEAR CLOSED-TOE SHOES (NO SANDALS OR FLIP FLOPS)

Our volunteer time will be followed by a short tour of the facility if time permits.

Please contact us if this is something your family would like to help with.
