In recognition of National Volunteer Week, United Way thanks our more than 4,000 volunteers who helped improve the education, income, and health of our communities in 2012. By lending a hand, you show us all what it means to LIVE UNITED.
This week especially, we want to thank the individuals, families, corporate partners, nonprofit agencies and community leaders who dedicate not just their dollars, but their time, to help support our community-impact plan, LIVE UNITED 2020. United Way volunteers are critical to achieving LIVE UNITED 2020 by helping us transform communities of greatest need across our six-county footprint. We know that change won’t happen without them. Their time, talent and resources are essential to the on-the-ground work our communities need to make this plan a reality. In fact, more than 4,000 United Way volunteers saved our partner agencies $350,000 through 15,000 donated hours in 2012 alone.
Whatever your talents are, you can use them to change the story for children and families across Chicagoland. Join volunteers already making a meaningful difference in our community – find a volunteer opportunity today!
