Lend a hand.  Touch a life.  Volunteer to create lasting change in our community.

Volunteering is at the heart of United Way’s mission. Mobilizing volunteers is a core service of United Way through the United Way Volunteer Center.   We are here to help individuals and/or businesses help others. Whether you’re interested in mentoring a young person, offering your skills as a financial advisor or spending an afternoon with a senior, you’ve come to the right place. If you have a few hours a month or one day a year, we can help you find a volunteer opportunity that matches your skills and interests.
