United Way – Volunteering:

Every donation you make to United Way goes to provide crucial funding to local charities and non-profits, but many of these organizations need more than just financial aid, they need helping hands to volunteer, whether that involves helping out at a local food pantry, distributing food and organizing donations, or signing up to help out at homeless shelters. Many of these agencies are short staffed and could always use a helping hand, so if you can’t afford a donation, or want to help out the community more directly, volunteering is a great way to make a difference.

Below you’ll find a number of local charities and agencies that you can volunteer at, along with their contact information. Please consider giving them a call and helping out today!
