Volunteer Work Days at the Red River Valley Down Syndrome Society REACH Center

United WayThe United Way of Lamar County announced there is a VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY for those interested in a “Cleaning Day.”

The Red River Valley Down Syndrome Society REACH Center, located at 505 Lamar Avenue, will be hosting “cleaning days” of  Painting, Cleaning, & Yard Work for those wanting to help.

These “cleaning days’ will be held on the next four Saturdays – April 26, May 3, May 17 and May 24, from 11 am – 5 pm each day. Work one hour or work them all, they just need your help. Please bring supplies: painting materials, yard tools, gloves, etc.

The Johnny Stallings Recreational REACH Center is a facility that will offer a program that builds up students’ academic, emotional and social skills while providing a safe place for older individuals with disabilities to attend while their parents are working.  Members will have access to a wide variety of activities which though entertaining, will also improve fine and gross motor skills, mental agility, physical fitness, and performance in school.

Renovations on the building are almost complete and it’s our hope, to be able to offer this program to the community in August.
