Your world needs you. Will you take the challenge? Say yes, and volunteer! Taking a walk is good exercise for you and your child, plus it can also be a special time together. That's what these Born Learning Trails do Thanks to Duke Energy and Delphi for installing them as part of their corporate volunteering plan. United Way is building healthier, more resilient communities by promoting healthy eating and physical activity, expanding access to quality health care and integrating health into early childhood development.

Welcome! 

At United Way, we have a community of employees who strive to do their best and recognize the value of our mission and the teamwork necessary for success. United Way’s mission to improve lives and strengthen communities is fueled by the passion and hard work of tons of volunteers. People are giving their time and talents to create lasting solutions that improve life for everyone.

Meaningful community solutions require more than money or programs or policies. The kind of real and lasting change that benefits everyone is only possible when people from all walks of life are willing to roll up their sleeves and go where their time and talent is most needed.
