We love our volunteers!

This week is National Volunteer Week, and a time when we extend an extra "thanks" for all volunteers do to make United Way work.

Volunteers make an impact here at United Way in many capacities - from serving on our Board of Directors, Allocations teams or other committees to participating in Day of Caring projects at nonprofits and the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center to volunteering within their company to help run a United Way workforce campaign.

In honor of the first year, Wireless Zone, A Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer, is donating a $25 gift certificate to any individual who comes in to one of the local retail locations and contributes two cans to the cause!
