Time is a precious gift
Often the gift of time is more valuable than money. Volunteering creates deep personal connections and provides you a rich experience while strengthening our community. There are lots of ways for you to get involved. We invite you to be part of this exciting movement. Let’s work together.
We need to grow our network of volunteers to achieve the outcomes we want for our community. United Way is looking for Education, Income and Health volunteers to help in specific ways in 2015, including reading to and with children, becoming a mentor, and serving at emergency food programs. Join the movement and give the precious gift of time.
The Volunteer Connection is our online resource of hundreds of volunteer opportunities from more than 250 local nonprofits. Volunteers of all ages will find opportunities to serve once a week, once a month or once in a while. Use the links below to help you search for the volunteer opportunity that is right for you:
