Volunteer Opportunities

Not only does United Way of Cass-Clay work to give local people opportunities to improve their life, we also serve those in our community who want to LIVE UNITED and volunteer for our community. With United Way, it's easy to find a volunteer opportunity for just you, or a group of coworkers, friends or family members. We've organized our volunteer opportunities into one-time opportunities and on-going volunteer opportunities. Explore your opportunities to LIVE UNITED!

One-Time Volunteer Opportunities

Day of Caring

DAY OF CARING mobilizes thousands of volunteers from all over the Cass & Clay communities to help area seniors with projects around their homes. The volunteer opportunities and activities vary greatly for the day-some individuals request help with light cleaning projects while some have larger requests for lawn care, cleaning gutters, pulling out flower beds/gardens. Some teams of volunteers request to work indoors while others work outdoors.

Time Commitment: 2 or 4 hour shifts during the afternoon of October 10, 2019

School Supply Drive

Spend a morning, over lunch hour, or afternoon shift packing backpacks for the 2018 School Supply Drive. It’s a great chance to get involved in a hands-on way that made an impact. In 2017, 5,800 backpacks full of supplies were given to local K-12 students in need to help give them the very best start in school and in life. 

Time Commitment: 2 hr inventory & packing shifts (Dates TBA)
