Group Volunteer Opportunities Throughout the Year

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
VITA is a nationwide program sponsored by the IRS that is available during tax season. Volunteers provide basic tax preparation assistance to individuals and families with a household income of approximately $53,000 a year or less. No experience is necessary and you certainly don't need to be a tax expert (or even a math expert!) to make a huge impact on lives of those in need. Training and guidance is provided by the IRS and our experienced volunteers, and you'll walk away with more knowledge about how to do your own taxes. Plus, you'll be working with families that need the help. Trainings are held each January, so stay tuned for more information at the end of 2017!

Community Baby Shower
Held annually in May, the Community Baby Shower helps to collect needed items for financially strapped and struggling new parents. This is a perfect chance for your office or group to hold a drive to help the community!

National Day of Action
United Way Day of Action is an invitation for people and organizations around the world to LIVE UNITED and take action to address a variety of challenges. It is a day that we ask you to help us put our mission into action by improving the building blocks for a good quality of life. Hundreds of people throughout Washtenaw County will be serving at a variety of different agencies each June on the longest day of the year. 

United Way Wish Book
Each holiday season, United Way compiles a Wish Book of all the different ways to volunteer and give back during the holiday season. The Wish Book is your one stop shop to learn how you can give back to your community each holiday season.

 

United Way of Washtenaw County requires a one month lead time to help connect groups with volunteer opportunities. Our nonprofit partners need ample time to plan and prepare for volunteer groups.
What would your group like to do? Does your company have an area of focus (such as early childhood, education, health)? Is there anything you would prefer not to do?
