Volunteer Opportunities through United Way of Madison County


MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – United Way of Madison County has announced 27 partner organizations they will be working with over the next three years and they wanted to remind the community how important their help is.

United Way of Madison County has served the area for many years and the organization has been hard at work this summer. Following partner announcements, United Way announces that it will invest $800,000 in partners each year. Their goal is to work with partners to solve the problems faced by people in the region.

The nonprofit also announced that it is working with two new organizations: the North Alabama Coalition of the Homeless and Partnership for a Drug-Free Community.

“Thanks to our lovely donors and community supporters, we continue to meet these growing needs. And we are still in that position of meeting financial needs, education needs and health needs,” Cathy Miller, United Way’s director of community impact told News 19.

Centraide also reminds the community that there are many opportunities for people who wish to volunteer. Miller says volunteers help maximize their service to the community.

“Thanks to lovely volunteers who have worked only with us, not even with our partners or the wider community through our volunteer center, we have had over $100,000 worth of time in people giving to us,” she said. “That’s an element of efficiency that we need to have in the nonprofit sector right now because we’re dealing with this great growth as a sector and without volunteers we can’t do so much.”

If you’re looking for volunteer opportunities, Miller recommends visiting two different sites.

Visit the Volunteer Center, which offers local volunteer opportunities with over 200 nonprofit organizations. Miller says you can adjust the filters to find something that matches what you’re looking for.

You can also visit the United Way of Madison County website to find out how to get involved.
