Answer the call to your community.

The Legacy Senior Communities’ volunteer program was created to help fill our residents’ days with meaning and joy, and to give back to our greater DFW community. Volunteer opportunities at both our Plano and Dallas communities are plentiful, and we welcome volunteers of all ages. Use your own talents or skills to engage with our seniors in a wide range of activities. We’re always open to new volunteer ideas, too. The gift of your time can make a real difference in the lives of our seniors.

We Need Your Support

Stitching for Good

Since 2010, The Legacy Knit & Crochet Club has been crafting handmade items using donated yarn. These items are then distributed to local not-for-profit organizations dedicated to assisting families in need. We kindly request your assistance in our endeavor by contributing medium worsted (#4) yarn in a range of vibrant colors.
