It takes more than talk to ensure that our community’s children, families and individuals have access to quality education, sustainable income, good health and stable housing. It takes people of action.
From helping a child learn to read in just 30 minutes, once a week, from your desk (TutorMate) to school beautification projects and corporate philanthropy, we have all kinds of gratifying volunteer opportunities.
No matter what experience or time you have to give, putting your skills to use will make a significant impact in your community. And you’ll feel great from the experience.

The Power of Volunteerism
Last year, our volunteers collectively contributed 27,675 hours towards helping ensure that our community’s children, families and individuals have access to quality education, sustainable income, good health and stable housing. A few highlights:
Special thanks to our friends at QSC, LLC who donated and assembled over 30 Welcome Home Baskets in support of the families served through Orange County United Way’s Rapid Re-Housing initiative. Through your generosity, these families will receive the basic home supplies they need to help them get back on their feet as they begin to create new memories in their permanent homes.
Orange County United Way is grateful to the over 70 volunteers who participated in this year’s Read Across America event. A child’s ability to read has a direct effect on their future success, and we are most appreciative of your support in encouraging children to read.
Women United members volunteered at The Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim during the holiday season. With other 235 families served and over 550 toys donated, families were able to select 2 toys per child. Volunteers helped parents select gifts and wrap them.
