Volunteers Making an Impact


United Way California Capital Region works hard to connect volunteers to community organizations where they can make a difference in our community. We’re are so proud of our volunteers and wanted to showcase recent impact in action. Check out what they have been up to!

Gulfstream Aerospace at Placer Food Bank

Volunteers from Gulfstream Aerospace showed up in force to help Placer Food Bank on a Saturday! 14 Gulfstream employees joined some local volunteers to assemble 390 care packages for the food bank’s most need clients and had a blast while doing it.

UPS at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services

Volunteers from UPS spent some time at the newly renovated Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. They brought their skills in efficiency to the aid of the food bank by helping assemble bags of fresh produce to distribute to clients at their neighborhood farmers markets. They were a huge help and look forward to being back soon.

Young Leaders Society (YLS) Build Day

Volunteers with United Way’s Young Leaders Society (YLS) met with Habitat Young Professionals for a joint volunteer project at the Indian Lane build site. YLS and HYP contributed a hard day’s work to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s largest and most ambitious project to date.
