Volunteer

We also are seeking volunteers to assist the Executive Director or to help with a specific event, project or simply spreading the word to potential donors. Some examples (below) would be supporting a fundraising event, seeking and meeting with merchants and employers who may support United Way programs or helping us review annual grant applications.
