A Culture of Caring
Part of the progress in Temple, Texas, is owned by those who call it home. Residents, friends and neighbors are eager and enthusiastic to do more than maintain quality of life – they’re fueling it forward through giving back.
Volunteers in Temple contribute to their community through a variety of organizations and initiatives. Health services to local heritage, individuals and families are cultivating a culture that cares and demonstrating their community pride through volunteering.
The City of Temple Adopt-a-Park and Volunteer in Parks programs invite locals to help with a wide range of duties. Volunteers can lend their hearts and hands while caring for others at facilities like Baylor Scott & White, while helpers at Temple’s Ronald McDonald House tend to families. The Un-Included Club is one of many local nonprofits that focus on supporting youth and building self-esteem through tutoring, literacy, field trips and life lessons.
United Way of Central Texas has a history of improving local lives since its founding in 1951, with local volunteers and community partners providing education, financial stability, health and basic needs services to neighbors most in need. Many Temple residents also make their impact through Altrusa International’s Temple club, which offers access to service projects submitted by members and voted on by the local club.
