• Volunteers working on a house for Habitat for Humanity
  • Volunteers clearing a hiking trail at a local park

A great way to volunteer is through NCTC's mobile food pantries. Both food pantries are open to NCTC students, employees and the community at-large. Nobody is turned away - as they do not require proof of income.

Denton County:

  • North Texas Food Bank
  • Last Friday of the Month
  • 1:00 PM-3:00 PM
  • Corinth Campus Parking Lot
  • Indoors during inclement weather

Cooke County: *FOOD BANK WILL RETURN 9/7/2019**

  • VISTO & Tarrant County Food Bank
  • First Saturday of the Month
  • 9:30 AM
  • Equine Center 
  • 1000 on the Map

Questions regarding the Denton County food pantry may be directed to Dr. Del Rio. Questions regarding the Cooke County food pantry may be directed to Daisy Garcia; NCTC Departments or individual volunteers wanting to help may contact studentlife@nctc.edu

Another way for students to volunteer is to go on a NCTC Service Learning Trip. In addition to volunteering, students get the opportunity to learn about various communities, enjoy the culture of the area and reflect on their visit. The NCTC Service Learning trips promote teamwork and help build student's skill levels. For more info, contact Daisy Garcia at dgarcia@nctc.edu
