Our goal is to mobilize the caring power of the community through volunteerism. From individual tutoring opportunities to group neighborhood beautification projects, we have hundreds of volunteer opportunities available. No matter what experience or time you have to give, there are many ways to make a significant impact in the community. By volunteering, you are playing a role in solving important community problems and enabling United Way and our community partners to accomplish more.
Individual Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteering can mean whatever you want it to. Give an hour. Give an afternoon or a weekend. Give of yourself. Read to children. Deliver a hot meal to a homebound senior. Share your knowledge about taxes. Be a coach. Be a friend. Be a mentor. Do what you can, when you can. It’s a great way to put your talents to work, learn new skills, meet new people, improve your health, and make a difference.
We provide a one-stop shop for volunteers to find opportunities for involvement, match interest of volunteers to community needs and the work of United Way, engage volunteers from all aspects of the community, including students, ensure volunteer satisfaction. We offer two great ways to find the right volunteer opportunity!
