WE OFFER A VARIETY OF WAYS TO VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
TO HELP OUR COMMUNITIES
We all have special talents and things we can do to help. When we extend a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families or checking in on seniors, there are always opportunities to get involved.
Read United works to instill a love of reading through one-on-one tutoring. Heart of Indiana United Way’s Read United program pairs volunteers with third-grade students who are struggling to read at grade level. Volunteers read with two students (30 minutes each). Together, the student and volunteers read, discuss, and write about their books.
Neighbors in our community are living on the edge, surviving paycheck-to-paycheck, unable or barely able to meet their expenses—and just one doctor’s visit or car problem away from crisis. Weatherization can help reduce energy costs, prevent potential health problems, and help keep our neighbors on a track to meet their basic needs.
