Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q - I am looking to offer a helping hand to those elderly in need. I would like to support our community by volunteering my time to help someone less fortunate. However I don't know how to go about finding those that truly need help.


I am not looking to make large financial donations, but to offer my time. I am willing to take on some expense to help complete around-the -home projects (or) things that maybe someone is unable to physically complete any longer.


Any suggestions?


A. - You will be joining a lot of good people in Terrell who give generously of their time. Since you specifically mentioned that you would like to volunteer to help elderly people in need, I suggest you contact one or both of these organizations.


The Share Center is a wonderful organization that is helping a lot of needy people in our town. They provide food, clothing, and other assistance to people in need in this community. Many of their clients are senior citizens who need help making ends meet.

Another organization that always needs volunteer support is Kaufman County Senior Citizens Services. They run the Meals on Wheels program along with a number of other programs that help senior citizens.
