Volunteer and Change the World!


We are gearing up for the fall semester with several projects planned to help both locally and around the world. Projects will look different this year, but we can social distance, take precautions, and still help others (and have fun!).


A Very Sad Update

We lost one of our all-time favorite volunteers. Bill worked with us on many trips, including Oklahoma, Texas (6 trips), Alabama (2 trips), and North Carolina, from 2009-2019 and on every one made many new friends. He also organized events in Dallas as head of the Dallas BonaResponds Chapter. We want to continue his legacy and on future trips there will be a 'Bill Night' when we have a dinner in his honor.

Local Service Updates

Polar vortexes (vortices?) can't stop us! We might not be out constructing ramps when it's so very, very cold, but we sure have been keeping busy. We've made boxes for trail literature and Warm Snuggly Blankets. We helped install a new shower and handrails for a local Korean War veteran to make it easier for him to shower. We also helped move a disabled man to his new apartment.


WarmSnugglyBlanket Updates

Thanks so much to all of the volunteers who came out to help at our Blanket Making Day. Do you know of someone facing cancer who could use a reminder that many are rooting for him/her/them? Message us on Facebook or send an email to BonaResponds@gmail.com


Haiti Updates

Soccer practice at Les Cayes! This is one of the great programs in Haiti receiving sports equipment and school supplies from BonaResponds. Thanks so much to all who have donated new or gently used supplies.
