Volunteers Making an Impact
January & Febuary


The beginning of 2015 has flown by for United Way California Capital Region. Volunteers make a huge difference in our community and we’re proud to showcase recent impact in action. Check out what our volunteers have been up to!


Volunteers with United Way’s Young Leaders Society (YLS) honored Martin Luther King, Jr’s legacy by participating in the national Day of Service. These ten members of YLS helped Next Move Sacramento reorganize and clean their community donation center, readying it for the New Year. Read more here!


YLS was at it again! The young leaders went to Grant High School to work in the GEO Garden with the Health Education Council. They helped students in United Way’s Fit Kids program with cooking education and garden enhanced nutrition education. Read more about it here on our blog.

HP spent a day working at the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. 20 plus volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got to work preventing hunger in our community. They helped to help sort, clean and box up food and household products to go to local families in need.

Looking Forward

We need community members to help up promote literacy and give back to their local kids. STAR Readers is looking for community members to visit several program sites and engage with kids grades K-3 by being a STAR Listener. Visit our Volunteer Center here to learn more.

At The end of March we are beginning our Women in Philanthropy (WIP) Foster Youth Workshops. We are looking for volunteers to lead various life skills workshops for local foster youth. There is a list of workshops to be presented at the volunteer center. Sign up here today!

Visit our Volunteer Center here for these and so many more opportunities to give back to your community.
