Let us help you arrange and participate
in events aimed at improving the community.
We can work with you and your organization to create a volunteering experience, a food or gift drive, an event, and so much more.
You can build team-work, develop management skills, or just give your friends and colleagues the chance to give back to the community.
“I used to have difficulty speaking in public. After working with the United Way, I have developed the confidence and experience that makes it easy for me now.” – comment from a volunteer.Here are some other activities during the last year:
Management washed employees’ cars to raise funds for the United Way of Central Jersey Employees donated books for a used book sale One group has accepted the challenge to develop a food shopping and delivery service for home-bound seniors Another group has adopted single mothers to help them achieve financial self-sufficiency Food drives, holiday toy drives, school materials for needy families make a huge difference both in the lives of recipients and the lives of the donors.Volunteer groups, for example, have worked with seniors and people with disabilities to provide some social interaction with populations that may feel isolated.
There was dancing at an Oktoberfest party between an octogenarian and a twenty-something volunteer!Volunteers can do maintenance jobs that help non-profits to save money on painting and gardening, etc.
