Houston volunteer opportunities

COLLEGE MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY ASSOCIATION

What Is It?: An historic five-acre cemetery that was founded in 1896 and served as the burial site for Houston’s freed slaves who lived in the historic Fourth Ward. The cemetery was neglected for many years.

 

Help Needed: Restoration began in 2007 and is ongoing. Volunteers are needed to help with work such as mowing, trimming weeds, and cleaning up litter.

 

Minimum Age to Volunteer: All ages may help, but children must be accompanied – and well supervised by – an adult.  All volunteers must submit a volunteer waiver.
