Missouri City launches volunteer program

Missouri City’s dedication to citizen partnerships is one of the many ways that the “Show Me City” has been recognized as one of “America’s Best Places to Live” by CNN Money Magazine. In keeping with the City’s goal of community collaboration, Staff is launching a comprehensive and unified City-wide Municipal Volunteer Program (MVP) that will incorporate current opportunities and expand into new areas within the City.

“Missouri City is respected for its safe streets, its thriving business, its scenic neighborhoods and its caring citizens. As the City continues to flourish, exciting opportunities such as the new volunteer program provide citizens a chance to partner with Staff on community projects,” City Manager Ed Broussard said. “This program a chance for residents to share their time and talents with the City while building camaraderie with their fellow neighbors.”

Volunteer projects will range from public safety initiatives that crackdown on crime to environmental enterprises that help keep our area clean to parks projects that help beautify our green spaces. There will also be a chance for citizens to serve during emergency situations, helping to distribute critical information and supplies that can protect and save citizens.

“Many residents are excited about the possibility of getting involved and would like to see programs that engage youths and senior citizens, encourage people to recycle and compost and inspire companies to sponsor their communities,” Missouri City Communications Director Stacie Walker said. “We’re excited for this program to grow and for residents to become more involved in the City’s continued success.”

To get involved, contact Missouri City Media Relations Specialist Cory Stottlemyer at 281-403-8532 and cstottlemyer@missouricitytx.gov to receive a volunteer application.
