Welcome to the Volunteer Portal!
This community resource is part of United Way’s volunteer initiative. With your help we strive to be the volunteer hub of the Dutchess-Orange Region. As a key element of the Campaign for the Common Good we are seeking increased engagement and stronger partnerships with our business, government and non-profit partners.
Volunteerism is core to the mission of United Way. The Volunteer Portal can connect you to local organizations seeking volunteers to assist with the crucial work they do in our community every day.
Every hour, every minute you give help to someone in need.
Studies show that volunteer hours, valued at $28.04 per hour for each volunteer, add up and save donor dollars allowing more money to go to much needed services in our community.
To get started register here.
Lend your muscle to dozens of vital organizations with unique missions. We are certain the portal will connect you to a cause you are passionate about.
In addition check out our special events page to see how you can get involved in national community service days. LIVE UNITED!
Volunteerism is a great way to take a break from your usual routine, and take the time to consider the communities that surround us daily. With the warm weather quickly approaching, why not consider spending a Saturday morning or a Tuesday afternoon in the sun?
The impact of volunteerism can be enormous and can reach many people, but only with the help of our volunteers! Signing up to volunteer does not need to be a big commitment; offering even one hour of your time can make all of the difference. Whether you have never volunteered before, or perhaps it is one of your biggest passions--getting involved through volunteerism is always a fantastic way to kick start your day, and give back to the communities that we often take for granted.
Volunteering is an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people! By interacting with community members, you have the chance to hear new sides of the story, and gain new perspectives that you may never have had the chance to consider before.
Leave your mark on your community by getting out there and contributing--no action is too small!
