Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give your best. We all have special talents. Things we can do to help. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families, or delivering meals to homebound seniors, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day.
Give the gift of you. Volunteer.
United Way Volunteer Opportunities include:
A Global Opportunity
Every year on June 21, volunteers from across the country and world participate in United Way Day of Action, and last year, more than 165,000 volunteers in 270 cities were mobilized. Locally, more than 50 individuals helped advance our community’s education goals around early childhood education in a single day by bringing together people with the passion to contribute to a better life for all. Volunteers served more than 500 children in Hartford, East Hartford and New Britain.
“I am happy to give back to this great community. As a first time volunteer on Day of Action, it is definitely an experience I would do again. By Living United, we come together to work to make sure everyone is given equal opportunities to succeed, especially in education. That’s what this fun day of volunteering was all about.”
– Betsy McCue, McCue Mortgage
