Rowan County United Way is making a difference in our community, and you can help! We can connect you with the right volunteer opportunity to fit your interests and skills.
You can volunteer once, on a regular basis, as an individual, or with a group. It’s all up to you. Whatever help you can give will make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Some of the opportunities available include:
- Day of Caring – Each year, volunteers from numerous companies across the community come together to complete projects such as landscaping, painting and building for local schools and agencies. Schools and non-profit agencies are encouraged to submit applications for projects that can be accomplished in a day. To learn more about volunteering with your company, or individually, call the United Way office at 704-633-1802.
- Allocations Assistance – Approximately 100 volunteers decide how United Way dollars are spent in Rowan County. The allocations process allows volunteers to serve as stewards of the community’s money by monitoring how agencies spend. The 100 volunteers comprise eight panels. They visit each agency to observe the delivery of services to Rowan County residents, as well as analyze budgets to ensure that funds are being used efficiently.
- Annual Campaign Help
