Corporate Volunteerism

More than ever, employees are interested in making an impact in their communities.

Through events such as Day of Action and activities created just for your work site--such as assembling literacy kits--United Way makes it easy for company employees to be vital contributors to the life of the community while still working full time.

Don’t have a Community Relations Department and want to offer year-round volunteer opportunities for your employees? We can manage it all for you!

Here are some ways we can help you engage and inspire employees:

Days of Action
Annual Days of Action mobilize hundreds of corporate volunteers in meaningful service projects that support our region while building teamwork among your employees.

Mobile Food Pantries
Volunteers work together to set up a farmer’s market-style pantry that distributed free, fresh food to struggling families.

BoardServe
A full-day, in-depth governance training for individuals interested n serving on a nonprofit board. Graduates are connected with a nonprofit that matches their skills and passions.

Business to Books Read-a-Thon
Groups of corporate employees volunteer an afternoon to read to children at local elementary schools, serving as role models for students.

Kit-Packing Projects
We can come in and manage a kit-packing project that engages your employees at your site. Collect school supplies, books, hygiene products, or even household items, and we’ll help your employees pack and distributed them to local nonprofits or schools.
