We ❤️ Our Volunteers
We’re fortunate to work with an amazing group of dedicated volunteers who are transforming Greater Stark County. Thanks for all of your hard work!
I have always believed that one person can make a difference, even if it is just in small ways. I also have always been inspired by individuals who have demonstrated that effort and commitment can improve our community and the daily life of our fellow citizens.
As a Stark County native, I’m proud to give my dollars and hours back to a community that’s near and dear to me. Volunteering with United Way has given me the opportunity to share my passions, make an impact and meet some amazing people along the way.
Volunteering through United Way's Young Leaders Society has been such a rewarding experience. It's incredible to see how small contributions can lead to big changes in our community.
