Summer of Impact 2018

June 26, 2018

By: Missa Perron

United Way Bay Area is excited to invite corporate teams to join us in a Summer of Impact. Starting in July through September 2018, we will offer a curated set of three volunteer events for corporate teams. The United Way Bay Area team makes it easy for you – we will oversee all of the logistics and bring together your colleagues’ volunteer skill sets with the needs of the eight Bay Area counties we serve.

United Way Bay Area works with over 140 community partners across the Bay Area to support people in need. By partnering with United Way and our network of community partners, you can trust that your employee engagement activities will truly make an impact. Each year, we survey our member organizations to assess their challenges, organizational goals, and internal capacity to manage volunteers. We designed our Summer of Impact volunteer opportunities equipped with this knowledge.
