Did you know? Every night in Greensboro, more than 900 people go to sleep homeless — in shelters, under bridges, in the woods or in cars. Basic needs kits are a simple way to provide practical help to individuals experiencing homelessness. Join United Way Young Leaders and sign up today to host a Basic Needs Kits Drive with your family and friends, neighborhood, office or place of worship! All items must be delivered to United Way’s office by May 20. Click here to sign up.
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 email@example.com.
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.
Strategic Leadership – Committees & Councils
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-378-5083.

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK, APRIL 2021
Every National Volunteer Week, United Way of Greater Greensboro, The Volunteer Center and partner agencies provide you with a variety of ways to give and volunteer your time.
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.
