Volunteer Information
Foster Care and Adoption provides families for abused and neglected children. Foster parents provide a loving home for children with traumatic backgrounds who need a place to find hope and healing. Children attend public schools, participate in many extracurricular activities and are active in the community.

Buckner is already working on collecting and sorting school supplies for our foster children to return to school this Fall. On Saturday, August 5th, we are looking for volunteers that are willing to come to the Dallas campus and help us with the school supply train. Once the school supplies are sorted, volunteers will drive to several foster homes around the area and deliver the supplies to a foster family. They will also help the foster children pick out their backpacks for the upcoming year. Buckner will provide all of the school supplies and backpacks. However, we are looking for energetic volunteers to help us sort and deliver! We want this to be fun and encouraging way for the foster children to start the new school year. Please consider decorating your trunk with a fun theme so that the foster children are surprised when they approach your car to select their backpack. Buckner will have supplies to help you decorate at the event. However, we prefer that you decorate your trunk before arriving. Think fun, bright and festive!

When you arrive, the first hour will be spent at a volunteer orientation. When that is complete, we will sort and pack the school supplies. Around 1:00PM, everyone will leave the campus to deliver the school supplies to their assigned families. Every car will receive a map and the foster families will be expecting you. Please register here if you are interested in volunteering for this opportunity and Buckner staff will contact you with more information and some fun truck decorating ideas.
