Volunteering Made Easy, Impact Made Forever

Volunteering Made Easy

United Way of Central Minnesota helps bring our community hallmark-type events that engage volunteers with our greatest needs. These annual volunteer opportunities offer a nice framework for companies to go beyond Workplace Giving and connect their culture with immediate impact. It’s also a great way for families, service groups, churches, or anyone looking to benefit from getting involved locally to help drive change.

Volunteer Action Center

Every task force has a headquarters and rallying point. United Way of Central Minnesota is no different. Our Volunteer Action Center offers volunteers a home base for all volunteer efforts. It’s a central hub for connecting with other volunteers, hosting events and is the home to Keshia's Closet,  a supply closet for needed items.

From event planning to capital fundraising to affinity group specialty programming, our committees are wide and diverse and always looking for support.
