Ways to Volunteer

Dear United Way friends,

We are fortunate to have tens of thousands across Greater Cincinnati who support the community-changing work we do in our community. Some of them, and others, see United Way of Greater Cincinnati as a hub providing access to volunteer activities.

We are in the midst of our Notes of Encouragement campaign, a volunteer effort to deliver 15,000 notes of encouragement to isolated older adults across our community. I hope you will join in that effort. But did you know countless volunteer opportunities are listed on our Volunteer Connection website, including many related to COVID-19 relief effort?


Right now, there are opportunities to sew masks, cook a meal, become a guardian for a senior citizen or an advocate for an abused child, among many others. You can also volunteer “virtually” from home as a mentor for youth, by reading to individuals who are blind or visually impaired, or by collecting food, cleaning supplies or other items. Volunteers can also prepare, pack or deliver meals to older home bound adults.

Please check out all the opportunities with Volunteer Connection. United Way of Greater Cincinnati considers voluntarism integral to its mission. United is the way to volunteer opportunities that change our community for the better.
