Volunteer Your Time
VOLUNTEERING DURING A PANDEMIC
Keeping volunteers, their families and those they’re helping safe during this public health crisis is the highest priority. We all have a role in making sure that happens. If you plan to volunteer, review these guidelines .

WANT TO VOLUNTEER?
A network of local non-profit organizations and funding agencies have been working together to identify the areas of need in the Stark County community as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. This group is working to respond to those needs efficiently and effectively. Volunteers are always a critical need for agencies, and as our community recovers, we know that volunteers will be a great need to many.
Please complete this volunteer interest form if you are healthy and have the ability to volunteer. United Way is not placing volunteers, but we will share your information with local agencies that are in need of volunteers at this time. The agency will contact you directly to answer questions and finalize details around the volunteer opportunity.

Day of Caring
In 2020, Day of Caring looked a little different than usual. It is usually our biggest one-day community service event, showing that when we work together, we can change lives. Many workplaces and individuals joined us September 11 for a curbside collection of our community’s greatest needs: food, masks and cleaning supplies.
Coming soon: More details about Day of Caring 2021
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
Kindness during uncertain times is a great way to connect friends, neighbors and communities when they need it most. We challenge you to find time to share a random act of kindness with a friend, coworkers, neighbor, stranger or loved one.
National Volunteer Week
Volunteers power our work — they open their hearts, change lives and make our community a better place. In 2021, National Volunteer Week will be celebrated April 18 - 24, and is an opportunity to recognize the incredible people who donate their time, talent and voice to support our organization throughout the year.
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.
