If you are able or have the time to volunteer, please contact Joan Neher at <joanneher@att.net>  for the following volunteer opportunities:

The First United Methodist Church of Richardson sponsors two elementary schools in RISD. One is Greenwood Hills and  the other is Mark Twain.  Volunteers are needed to help students with reading and other activities  on Tuesdays at GHE and on Thursdays at Mark Twain.  You do not need to be a member of the First United Methodist Church to be a volunteer but you are asked to volunteer through the FUMCR website – <fumcr.com>

    Click on “Give & Serve”  , Then click on “Serve Beyond FUMCR” , then click on “School Partnerships”

You must have a BACKGROUND CHECK  to work in the schools and there is a quick method to do that on the <fumcr.com> website.  It does have to be done every year.
