Week of Action

Each year, Greater Mankato Area United Way holds a Week of Action, coordinating partners across the nonprofit, public and private sectors for a week of giving back to the community and promoting volunteerism.

We are calling on all regional volunteers to improve the quality of life in our community.

Greater Mankato Area United Way recruits corporate and community volunteers to various volunteer opportunities at our partner agencies and other nonprofits.

Spend time volunteering with us at local nonprofits. Agencies are working to ensure safe and comfortable conditions for volunteers.

Projects are first come, first served. For more information about getting involved with our Week of Action, please contact volunteer@mankatounitedway.org.
