This weekend, United Way is excited and honored to be the beneficiary of the bi-coastal Made in America music festival.
Engaging volunteers to help a child succeed in school, a family secure financial stability and a community embrace healthy habits will create a better life for all. United Way and nearly all charitable organizations rely on volunteers to help achieve our missions. Volunteers are our most valuable asset. Not only do they help advance the common good, they are goodwill ambassadors for our organizations and many also make financial contributions that sustain our work.
August 21 is National Senior Citizen Day. Created by President Reagan and Congress in 1988, the purpose of the day is to highlight ways to show gratitude to America’s senior citizens. One way to show older adults that we appreciate their contributions to our society is to volunteer, either alongside them or through projects designed to make life better for them.
