We are a community partner that raises awareness of community needs and create a platform for changes for the Common Good. We work with our local partners to identify needs and catalyze actions that create the change. We recognize volunteers as community Changemakers* through the power of their volunteer service. We build the capacity of volunteer programs by supporting volunteer managers, promoting industry best practices and keeping abreast of volunteer trends. The United Way Volunteer Center is a conduit for individuals to utilize their talents, skills and passions by volunteering to fill the needs of non-profit agencies. The commitment and dedication of the volunteers improves the community and helps create sustainable change.
Annual Events include: Martin Luther King Day in January; Heroes Against Hunger meal packaging events to support local food pantry needs; promotion of volunteer events and recognition during National Volunteer Week in April and the United Way Day of Caring in September, a day of service in partnership with community businesses and their employees.
*Changemaker: an individual that observes a need for social change and acts to resolve it. Changemakers come from all walks of life and make an impact through commitment and dedication, locally and globally.
