Round Rock Helpers - Seniors Helping Seniors

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Round Rock Helpers?

We are a group of volunteers, homeowners like yourselves, mostly retired who give some of our time to help the Seniors and Handicapped of Round Rock.

When can you come to my house?

Our volunteers set aside Friday mornings from 9:00 to 12:00  every week to help our clients. Some projects take more than a few hours and may be scheduled for other days of the week depending upon the personal schedules of those who volunteer.

Do you charge for your help?

No. We never charge for our work. We give you our help, however, if you would like to make a donation to Round Rock Helpers, we will accept the donation.

Why don't you charge for your services?

Our clients have different financial strengths. Some live on very limited fixed incomes, others have some money to spare. We want to be able to help all of our clients regardless of their income strengths.

Are you experts?

No, we are not experts on anything but some of our volunteers are pretty good at a lot of things. We can usually handle most home repairs that do not get into areas that require licensing from the city.

What do you do with any money that we might donate?

Most repairs cost some money. Any donations that we receive go to pay for the materials that we might have used on your house or on the house of someone that cannot afford to pay. Any excess donations will be used to help the Seniors and Handicapped of Round Rock, TX.

Are my contributions tax deductible?

We try not to be tax accountants and we do not give out receipts for any donation unless asked to do so. Most contributions, minus the material and fair labor costs that we provide, may be tax deductible. The amount that you choose to deduct is up to you and your tax accountant.

How can I make a contribution?

You can give the volunteers a check or cash while they are there or you can mail it to Round Rock Helpers, c/o First United Methodist Church, PO Box 1448, Round Rock, Texas 78680.
