Catawba County United Way Volunteer Center


United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income and health: the building blocks for a good life.  But we can't do it alone.  We need the heads, hands and hearts of committed people like you to help us tackle the problems facing our communities.  Each one of us has special talents.  Things we can to help.  Put your talents to work for your community.  Volunteer.

Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give your best. We all have special talents. Things we can do to help. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, or leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families, or delivering meals to homebound seniors, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day.
