United Way of Tarrant County depends on the giving nature of volunteers to make a real impact. In fact, volunteers help make it possible for us to continue supporting the Tarrant County community. Last year, thousands of people volunteered over 30,000 hours.
JOIN US FOR A DAY OF ACTION ON 6/21/21
United Way of Tarrant County’s Day of Action is an annual event inviting volunteers to address some of the greatest emerging needs in our community. In partnership with Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County, Healthy Tarrant County Collaboration, and Opal’s Farm (a local urban farm run by 94-year old activist, Opal Lee) we are supporting and celebrating older adults through activities that inspire their return to newly reopened senior centers!
We are continuing to identify the most pressing volunteer needs in our community. Due to the current COVID environment, in-person volunteer opportunities are limited and require adherence to CDC guidelines. Remote and virtual volunteer opportunities are readily available to engage from the comfort of your home or workspace. Three suggested activities include our Long-Term Care Notecard Project , Teacher Appreciation Notecard Project and T-shirt Tote Bag Project.
You can also learn more about volunteering with our Ombudsman and VITA programs. As an ombudsman volunteer, you will enjoy a certification course and flexible hours as you support long-term care residents by visiting, listening, and advocating for their quality of life and care. As a VITA volunteer, you will participate in online training for a role of your choice such as tax preparer, savings ambassador, greeter, or interpreter.
