Join Us by Volunteering!

Volunteers enable us to successfully and smoothly run our operations and events. We have many important and fulfilling volunteer opportunities that help make a better future for our community.

Your time, talent and energy are great assets to the community. Not only does volunteering help United Way Perth-Huron, it’s a way to show your #LocalLove by putting your passion into action, use your skills or develop new ones, expand your social circle and improve your health.

Last year, 600 people volunteered their time with United Way to improve lives locally.

  • Regional Community Committees (Stratford & Area, St. Marys & Area, North Perth, Goderich & Area, Northern Huron, Southern Huron)
