The Volunteer McKinney Center’s mission is to enhance the spirit of citizen’s responsibility and service in McKinney by facilitating volunteerism. Volunteers can improve the quality of life in our community by engaging in volunteer opportunities that are both challenging and satisfying. This can be achieved as we partner with the city, service organizations, non-profit agencies, churches, and businesses in our community to determine the needs that we face and share them with the citizens that can be part of the solution.
That was the thought in 1998 when a group of concerned citizens realized that with the city’s continued rapid growth rate, McKinney would benefit having its own volunteer center. Volunteer McKinney Center would serve as a central agency to act as a clearinghouse for potential volunteers and match them with agencies in need of volunteers. VMC has now expanded its services to provide an online volunteer match program, on going education opportunities including a nonprofit leadership program, consultation for organizations served, a youth board and youth programming, a volunteer driven home rehab program, an annual one day service project- Make A Difference Day and an annual volunteer recognition event honoring volunteers in the community.
Volunteer McKinney Center pledges to continue to provide quality services for the citizens of McKinney and surrounding communities. Our programs will continue to educate potential volunteers about available opportunities to serve and will enhance the ability of agencies and organizations to serve their clients. We are committed to connect people who can help with people who need help.
