About Us Our Impact Campaign Home Give News Get Involved

Volunteers make amazing things happen!


Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give once or give every week.  

Volunteer your time and skills to help those in need. We need general office help and assistance with events, as well as committee and board opportunities.


Local programs. Local results. All we need is YOU.

Do you have unique skills and a great idea about how to help the United Way? Feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you. 

The satisfaction one receives from volunteering is fulfilling. Just giving something back to your community by sharing your skills, talents and time to help others makes a big difference for those individuals in need.

Volunteers contribute a great deal to our efforts at the United Way. We rely upon people from all walks of life within our community to give generously of their time to help raise funds, take part in events and support our daily efforts and activities with their knowledge and expertise.

There are many ways to volunteer including:

Days of Caring

Join our Community Fund Campaign Cabinet in one of three communities

Help out at the United Way office

Run a workplace campaign where you work

Help out at United Way and other special events

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information please email: Sharon at info@uwcnvi.ca. Someone will follow up with you in 4 - 6 weeks.
