“We have several precautions in place this year to ensure everyone’s safety while still being able to provide the festivities they have come to expect over the years,” said Young Leaders Chair, Marcus Thomas.

Some of those precautions include masks being required for attendees, hand sanitizing stations, reducing the number of trunks to allow for social distancing, and more.

Individual and Small Group Volunteering

Volunteers are the heart of United Way. Volunteering can help you make a difference in someone’s life, learn or develop skills, improve your health, gain work experience, and even improves the likelihood that children will volunteer as an adult to name a few.

One-time Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with us for Trunk or Treat (October), National Volunteer Week (April), Day of Action (June), MeaningFULL Meals (July) or at a special event. All year, you can find individual volunteer opportunities with our partner The Volunteer Center of Greensboro.

Become a Mentor

Help children in our community succeed in school and in life. Mentoring a child requires a longer-term relationship that can fit your availability. Learn more about our Mentoring Matters initiative and search volunteer mentor opportunities.

Impact Councils & Grant Committees

Be a part of a team that reviews and recommends how United Way of Greater Greensboro can create the most significant impact. Their recommendations inform United Way’s investments. For more information about serving on an Impact Council or grant committee, contact Frank McCain at 336-378-6609 or frank.mccain@unitedwaygso.org.

Corporate Volunteering

Employee volunteer programs are more than a “feel good” venture. Including volunteerism as a component of your company’s corporate social responsibility and engagement strategy has measurable benefits.

Make United Way a part of your strategy. Engage employees in volunteerism during National Volunteer Week (April), Day of Action (June), MeaningFULL Meals (July) or at a special event. Consider hosting a volunteer service project during your United Way workplace campaign. Contact your workplace campaign account manager to explore the possibilities or call us at 336-378-6600.

The United Way of Greater Greensboro Board of Directors (UWGG Board) is the governing body of the organization and provides leadership and governance for all community impact strategies, investments, financial management and fundraising activities. For more information about serving on the Board of Directors, contact Antionette Enudu at antionette.enudu@unitedwaygso.org or 336-378-5083.

DAY OF ACTION, JUNE 21, 2021

On or around June 21, join thousands of people across the world volunteering on United Way’s annual Day of Action.

MEANINGFULL MEALS, JULY 2021

Many local students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. In the summer, many children often do not have the same access to a nutritious meal and go hungry. Be part of the solution and support MeaningFULL meals in July 2021.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY OF SERVICE, JANUARY 2022

In addition to the on-site service projects, this annual event includes a United Way Mentoring Matters fair, kid’s area, nonprofit fair, scavenger hunt and student performances.
