Community Engagement

Volunteers play a vital role in United Way’s work to make our community stronger.

United Way is hosting a variety of community engagement events in 2019, uniting volunteers to make a difference for our neighbors. The projects can accept large groups, offer teambuilding and networking opportunities and are planned by United Way staff.
