Volunteer Opportunities Near Our West Lake Houston Apartments
It’s easy to get so wrapped up in our busy day-to-day lives that we don’t always think about how we can be helping others. But one thing we love about our West Lake Houston apartments is the strong sense of community and neighborhood engagement in Redemption Square! If you’re feeling inspired to engage and give back to your community, there are lots of people, animals, and environments in need of assistance in Houston and beyond, and by volunteering just a little bit of your free time, you can make a difference! Today, we’re talking about a few worthy Houston organizations you can volunteer with.
TWRC Wildlife Center
Located in Northwest Houston near the Sam Houston Tollway, TWRC offers emergency care and rehabilitation for injured or orphaned wildlife in Houston. Since TWRC opened they have admitted over 392 species and 145,000 wild animals.
Volunteers help out with a bulk of the work around the center and they can always use a helping hand. This is a great place to volunteer if you are an animal lover.
Houston Pets Alive
Another great option for animal lovers is Houston Pets Alive! This no-kill shelter always needs volunteers to help meet the needs of Houston’s dogs and cats who are waiting to be adopted. Even if you don’t want to work directly with animals, you can help animals in need through fundraising efforts or by helping with clerical work from the comfort of our West Lake Houston apartments.
Houston Food Bank
Houston Food Bank has multiple locations, each with their own volunteering opportunities, but both the North and East Branches are under 20 minutes from our Northeast Houston apartments, as is Keegan’s Kitchen, which prepares meals for kids that are distributed at community locations where children gather after school. At the Houston Food Bank, you can help address food insecurity and hunger by preparing meals, sorting food, packing disaster boxes, or distributing meals to the community.
