Volunteer

United Way of Midland County is committed to connecting volunteers with meaningful opportunities to lend their time and talent. We have three areas of focus: Community, Corporate and Campus. Volunteering is such a rewarding experience—it feels good to lend a helping hand to others. You can also gain valuable experience, build new skills and meet new people.
