National Volunteer Week

Celebrating the Service of our amazing Volunteers

National Volunteer Week, April 10-16, 2016, highlights United Way of Greater Cleveland’s year-round efforts to thank and celebrate all of our volunteers. We engage hundreds of volunteers or as we like to call them, Community Heroes, each year in a variety of ways. Whether it is through our Young Leaders or a Day of Action project, our Community Heroes make a huge difference.

As we celebrate those who give back through volunteerism, we will feature various companies that embody a culture of volunteerism and provide opportunities for you to become a Community Hero by volunteering for a United Way cause that means the most to you.
