Volunteers - Week of Action

Looking to make a difference right here in our region? We want to connect your volunteer group with an area nonprofit during the week of June 20 - 24, 2016!

This year, sign-up for projects will be through United Way's Week of Action page on Get Connected. This lets you easily register a team, input t-shirt sizes, and connect with your nonprofit contact. More details below.

Please direct all Get Connected questions to Laura at LauraM@mankatounitedway.org or 507-345-4551. For any questions about a particular project, please contact the nonprofit contact listed.

New This Year
You can view a real-time spreadsheet of all projects. Some companies find this a helpful way to see what's available or if a nonprofit has a flexible time slot. A few projects have a special note on how to sign up. View the project spreadsheet here.

T-Shirts
Volunteers receive a free LIVE UNITED t-shirt from United Way that they will wear that day. The Get Connected sign-up will ask if you would like to pick up shirts at our office (127 S. 2nd St. #190), or if we should bring them to your office.
