Someone will contact you with information on our next available orientation.
The 1976 Maverick Society
The story is told that volunteers gathered items for Christmas for needy children in the area. Then household good and clothing were collected after a neighbors home had burned. It was all initially ran out of the trunk of a 1976 Ford Maverick. And so began Rockwall County Helping Hands.
