Looking for holiday donation and volunteer opportunities? Visit United Way California Capital Region’s online Volunteer Center to find more than a dozen needs in one place.
Holiday volunteers and donors are encouraged to post photos of their work on social media using #happy2help. Anyone can sign up to volunteer or donate, and most nonprofits across the region are eligible to add their volunteer opportunities, and can do so through the website.
United Way’s Volunteer Center is part of United Way’s Square One Project, which recognizes the importance of volunteers in making sure nonprofits and schools are equipped to provide a full support system for kids. The Square One Project is a 20-year promise to significantly increase the number of local students who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond.
Through nine decades of work and research across Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties, the local United Way now believes ending poverty starts in school and is working to ensure kids meet important milestones for success in college. To donate or volunteer, click here.
Volunteer opportunities are between Nov. 17- Dec. 31, 2016.
