United Way volunteer experiences provide hands-on opportunities to make a difference in the community through direct action.
Days of Caring volunteer opportunities are a terrific way for individuals and groups to get involved in our community. By actively supporting United Way programs and assisting our local funded partners in their important work, you’ll serve and support our neighbours and communities in need.
Participants can meet and work with others who have similar interests and purpose, using and growing their skills and knowledge, build connections and network with others while actively participating in tangible solutions. For groups and workplaces, this is also a wonderful chance to boost morale, foster teamwork, and promote your company’s visibility in the community.
