Volunteer

You are here

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.   

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.

Group and Corporate Projects

United Way can help your group, club or company align its philanthropic goals with volunteerism.  Strengthen your company, develop teamwork and support your community through volunteerism. Your volunteers will see firsthand the impact a partnership with United Way makes.
