2017 Winter Volunteer & Giving Guide



The United Way Volunteer Center’s core mission is to inspire, mobilize, and equip individuals and groups to take positive action to address pressing challenges, support nonprofits, prepare and respond to disasters and strengthen the quality of life in Johnson and Washington Counties. The Volunteer Center is the resource devoted to increasing volunteerism, engagement and service--to Build a Community of Volunteers!

We encourage adults to serve, youth to volunteer and build character, families to bond, young professionals to lead, mature adults to share their wisdom and businesses to support our community. Through organized volunteer projects, as well as by connecting individuals to nonprofit organizations, the United Way Volunteer Center helps people take action.
