Become A Volunteer

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the United Way of Ulster County. They help us to raise funds, and to distribute them to high quality services. They provide mentoring to those in need. They provide organizational leadership, and strategic planning. They help with clerical tasks, and special events. They perform essential community services at our member agencies. They help low-wage workers prepare their taxes. They help distribute food to local pantries.

In short, they make our work possible.
