Safe Options for Volunteering During the Pandemic 

The United Way Volunteer Center’s first priority is to keep all volunteers and their families safe while volunteering. We offer several volunteer projects that make it possible to volunteer safely at-home or at-a-distance, while making an impact in our community. Examples of volunteer projects include Literacy Kits that focus on promoting early elementary literacy skills, STEM Coding Kits that provide a fun way for kids to learn the binary alphabet for coding, and Calm Down Kits and Mindful Stress Balls that promote strategies to help calm and self-regulate.
