Volunteer

Due to COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, volunteer opportunities are very limited. Please check back with us in the spring for any updates. Thank you and please stay safe and healthy!

 

Looking for a socially distanced, 100% remote volunteer opportunity??  Consider Crowdfunding or Peer-to-Peer fundraising.  We supply the text platform, you supply the leadership skills and passion!

Simply challenge your friends, family, peers or co-workers to donate as little as $10 to help United Way of Forsyth County programs and services that support our residents. Share your challenge on social media and together we can watch the donations grow!  You choose your favorite keyword using our text2give number 678.730.5511, we take care of the rest!

This would be a great student led project to put on a transcript!

 

Volunteers are at the heart of our organization.  Plus, it's a great way to get involved in your community and see immediate results for your efforts. Thanks for considering United Way for your volunteer opportunities. 

Think about how you want to LIVE UNITED, and be selective about where you spend your time. Choosing opportunities that make you feel good while helping others builds stronger communities and enriches your own life at the same time.
