Go Beyond Your Workplace: Get Out and Serve
Does your company currently run a United Way Workplace Giving Campaign or donate a corporate gift to UWCK? If so, aligning your company’s philanthropic goals with strategic volunteerism is a great way to boost employee engagement, foster teamwork and give back to the community in a tangible way. 
 
Volunteers will learn about the depth and breadth of United Way’s community partners who create sustainable, positive changes in the lives of local low-income families. By enhancing your company’s United Way giving campaign with volunteer projects, employees will also gain a better understanding of where their donations are going and how they are benefitting the community.
