First Richardson Helpers: Seniors Helping Seniors

First Richardson Helpers’ senior volunteers help seniors in Richardson and the Dallas area within the RISD with minor home maintenance and repairs with a key focus on safety issues. Typical repairs can be completed in three hours over one or two work sessions. In addition to our handymen volunteers, volunteers are needed to schmooze with clients while projects are being completed. Interested in volunteering? Need services? Contact the 24 Hour Hotline at (972) 996-0160. or http://www.firstrichardsonhelpers.org/
