Be a Champion for the Cause
Advocacy is more than just dabbling in public policy. It is, rather, all about being a champion for a cause.
Lend your voice. Get informed.
Here are 6 ways you can become an advocate for the United Way of Florence County:
Tell your friends about your involvement with United Way of Florence County and what we do.
Write a letter to the editor. United Way needs people who are passionate about education, income and health to make some noise.
Join a walk or run in memory or in honor of someone you know or participate for a specific cause.
Become a Sponsored Executive for United Way. The Sponsored Executive Program helps United Way keep fundraising expenses down and provides a great learning and growing opportunity for individuals ready to make a difference.

Open Your Heart, Lend Your Muscle
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.
Give the gift of you. Volunteer.
The truth about volunteering is there are really TWO types of volunteers that are needed.
In conjunction with the Florence Visitor's & Convention Bureau, the United Way of Florence County coordinates the Volunteer Corps of Florence County.
Are you a professional, student or retiree who does not have time to volunteer "all the time," but would like to help out when you can? Then... the Volunteer Corps is right for you!
We are seeking to bring together individuals who are civically-minded, but, because of their schedules, do not have time to volunteer all the time. By joining the Volunteer Corps, you agree to receive period
"Calls to Action" about short-term or one-time volunteer opportunities in support of local Florence County non-profits.
Get connected by liking our Facebook page or joining our monthly email list to receive alerts about upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Help us help our local non-profits meet the growing needs of our community. To become a person of impact in our local community through volunteerism and to learn more about the Volunteer Corps, please contact our Marketing Manager:
Or stop by and visit us anytime!
The first type are volunteers who dedicate their time regularly to a cause - if you are interested in volunteering on a regular, scheduled basis, please contact us and we will be happy to connect you with one of our partner agencies who are constantly in need of volunteers.
The second type are volunteers who can help when a large group of people are needed - this can be for events, fund-raisers, clinics... there are numerous times throughout the year when local non-profits need help from more than their regular volunteer base. This is the gap the United Way of Florence is committed to filling.
