Immediate Volunteer Need
First Refuge is in immediate need of a couple men that would be willing to help pick up fresh produce from Lewisville twice a month. It would be every other Tuesday and takes about 2 hours of time. If you have a truck it would be helpful, but is not required. Contact Jodi Massey
for more information or to volunteer.
Free CPR and AED Training
If interested, contact Brenda Eckel, medical clinic coordinator at (940) 484-4384.
Will you donate just ½ or 1 day a month to help in the medical clinic?
We need doctors, PAs, NPs, nurses, medical assistants, receptionists, patient advocates, pharmacy techs, pharmacists, and English-Spanish speakers to function as translators. The time is well spent and fulfilling to helping those who need medical care but who have no health insurance or the ability to pay for medical services. Won’t you please help?
