  United Way Volunteer Opportunities
The ability of United Way to effectively serve the needs of thousands of Upper Valley residents each year depends greatly on the talents and dedication of its many volunteers.  We invite you to consider the following
  volunteer opportunities, and then join us in this important effort to build a more caring community for everyone.

Also provides a year-round local identity for United Way among the general public, donors, volunteers, member agencies and other target audiences.

Volunteer Development
