Volunteer with Us
We rely on people like you to make our work possible. Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and they help us keep costs low as we serve our community. Volunteering with us also provides great opportunities to learn new things, meet like-minded people, and ground yourself in your community. We invite you to donate your time and skills with us.
Our work is only possible because of organizations and companies that contribute to United Way! We recognize their generosity and their inexhaustible support. You too can fundraise and engage with us, and be recognized as a prominent contributor in our community.

You’ll get short, bi-weekly updates about the development of local programs, special invitations to virtual events, and relevant information about the changes that are being made in our community.
Contact United Way
Do you still have questions about how you can get involved with United Way? Maybe you are one of our volunteers and have questions about your next steps. Or maybe, you are part of an organization that wants to partner with us in a cause marketing campaign. Whatever your question is, we are here to help. Please reach out to us and one of our amazing team members will be happy to work with you and answer any questions you have!
Are you already running a campaign but need ideas on how to jazz it up, and engage your team more meaningfully? Take a look at our resources. We have DIY guides, accessibility training and virtual event ideas (like taking a virtual tour of your neighbourhood) to make your fundraising campaign the best it can be. These resources are here for you, so engage your workplace, raise awareness, and add fun to your workplace fundraising campaign!
If none of the options above sound right for you, but you still want to make a gift, we invite you to make an individual donation. Any contribution goes a long way to providing urgent resources to everyone in our community. The pandemic has disproportionately affected people who were already struggling. Your donations help us provide relief and make our recovery more inclusive.
