Celebrating our dedicated volunteers
National Volunteer Week April 15 – 22


United Way would not exist without the tremendous support of our volunteers. From our board of directors and action group members to Experience Corps reading tutors and AmeriCorps VISTAS, volunteers provide a strong support system for children and families through United Way’s Square One Project. 

Visit us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram during National Volunteer Week April 15 – 22 as we celebrate and highlight outstanding volunteers and the work they are doing to end poverty in our region.
