Each day thousands of people like you make their time and talents count by volunteering to help local nonprofit agencies with a wide range of tasks.
You could serve your community as a counselor, tutor, companion to the elderly, board or committee member. You could play games, pull weeds, or feed the hungry.
There are so many ways to get involved! United Way of Lancaster County’s Get Connected volunteer portal connects all kinds of volunteers – individuals and groups, young and old, corporations and families – to our community’s nonprofit agencies and education providers to help them achieve their missions, improve lives, and make our community a better place for all of us.

Ways to Volunteer
Week of Caring
This annual, week-long event gives individuals, families, and teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations a chance to be a part of a county-wide effort to give back by rolling up their sleeves and completing special projects for a nonprofit organization.
United Way partners with Representative Sturla each year to provide much-needed backpacks and school supplies to students before the school year begins. Backpacks are filled with a variety of items, including uniforms, shoes, supplies and books. Information on state services, higher education and college affordability is also provided.
Jackson Day of Action
A day of action in honor of trailblazing educator Hazel Jackson. We volunteer with students in the School District of Lancaster to celebrate the legacy of Hazel Jackson, by lending a hand in the same place she started her teaching career.
