Why It Is Important


Why it is important

United Way's Volunteer Center, works through local partnerships to identify needs and mobilize a response. We provide people with multiple platforms to connect to volunteer opportunities that offer much needed resources to the region’s nonprofit organizations.

What we are trying to accomplish

United Way Volunteer Center puts people at the heart of transforming their communities by calling on them to utilize their full range of assets—time, talent, and treasure through volunteering.  The volunteer’s efforts strengthen the social fiber of the community, connecting and building capacity by enhancing and expanding nonprofit services to meet community needs. 

How we work to achieve our goals 

We make a difference in our community by building the capacity for effective volunteering, connecting concerned people with needs in our community, promoting volunteerism and collaborating on regional, state and national volunteer initiatives.


Each year United Way Volunteer Center mobilizes over 3,000 volunteers that positively impact up to 150 nonprofit, community and faith based organizations and the clients they serve.  The volunteer service culminates in $500,000 in social contributions and provides a stronger, healthier and more prosperous region to live and work.
