Lend a hand to your community

You can make a difference in your community and help bring about the change you want to see in the world by volunteering for a cause or non-profit organization that shares your ideals.

Volunteering not only provides the satisfaction of making a difference, it can offer other benefits, such as:

  • Learning new skills
  • Meeting new people, including business contacts
  • Providing a sense of worth

Days of Caring

United Way sponsors several different Days of Caring focusing on different areas of impact. For 2018 these include:

  • March: Food packaging event to provide food and meals to local pantries so that they don’t run out during the summer
  • April: Community farming event to bring increased and sustainable capacity to grow healthy food in our community
  • May: Community Baby Shower to bring resources and information to low income new mom’s and dad’s so that they can get the best possible start in life
  • September: United We Sleep event to bring resources and awareness to the community around the topic of homelessness
  • October: Shoebox project to bring resources and improve the safety of our homebound seniors

Each day of caring provides broad and unique volunteer opportunities. Contact Liz or Mike at United Way for more information!
