Volunteering Made Easy, Impact Made Forever

Volunteering Made Easy

United Way of Central MN 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.
