Volunteering strengthens communities by increasing their capacity to identify and respond to human needs. Volunteering creates relationships at the institutional and personal levels that are a vital part of the fabric of the community and fosters civic responsibility, participation, understanding, and interaction.
Volunteers are on the forefront of much of the resource mobilization, relationship building, Collective Impact goal and vision setting, and other key United Way functions. They are the tutors, mentors, budget counselors, tax preparers, coaches, United Way campaign managers, community advocates and many others who give freely of their time and talents to make a difference in our communities.
