About

Join us for Mile High United Way's 3rd annual celebration of National Volunteer Week taking place April 19th - 23rd. Over the course of the week we will bring together volunteers across Metro Denver. Volunteer opportunities will include a variety of in-person, virtual, and remote options with Mile High United Way and our partners. Our goal is that volunteers end their volunteer experience with a better understanding of challenges facing our community and a new outlook on creative ways to make an impact. 

DRIVE OPPORTUNITY - We are looking for volunteers to purchase an item from our Amazon Wishlist which will help provide essential home supplies and wellness items to our youth and their families. Home and wellness items included in our list are basic necessities such as cleaning supplies, hygiene items, stationary, and home decor to brighten the space for spring and summer. You can also donate directly via our Donation Pay site for BTG Home and Wellness Items

National Volunteer Week is a great opporutnity for corporate groups and individuals. For more information on how to volunteer or sponsor this event, please email Caitlin.Henkel@unitedwaydenver.org 

Share pictures of you volunteering on social media and tag @unitedwaydenver 

We look forward to seeing you in April!

If a volunteer opportunity is locked, and asking for a code, does that mean that you have enough volunteers?
