Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give your best. We all have special talents and things we can do to help. No matter when you’ve participated in the past, or if you’re looking to get involved for the first time, coming together to volunteer is one of the best ways to connect heads, hearts and hands around Metro United Way’s work to create lasting change. Volunteering is also a great way to make new contacts, learn new skills, gain work experience, meet new people, and most importantly, make a difference in someone’s life. At Metro United Way, we recruit the people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. A community of connected individuals, all people, united and working together for the benefit of all, is at the heart of what we represent.

United Way Volunteer Connection makes volunteering fun, easy and accessible to individuals, families, groups and corporations. Discover how rewarding volunteering can be – whether you’re 18 or 80, a high school student or a retiree, part of a community service group or a corporate president.
