The season of giving

How and where can you give back?

The weather has grown colder, which means the holiday season is upon us!

Each year, United Way's Volunteer Engagement team gathers holidays volunteer opportunities from local organizations to create your go-to guide to giving back.

Below find ways for you, your family, your friends, or your workplace to give back this holiday season.
