You Can Change Lives

Volunteering with United Way brings businesses, individuals, families, and a network of partner agencies together to create community change. We have a range of opportunities where you, your family, your colleagues, or your business can make a real difference in San Diego.

Last year, 620 United Way volunteers served more than 6,600 hours, valued at $168,010. UWSD also helped an additional 814 volunteers find volunteer opportunities with our community partner organizations. UWSD volunteers participate in community programs year-round, from the annual Read Across America book drive and literacy celebration, to the Day of Action and Readers in the Heights initiatives over the summer, and the Holiday Food and Toy Drive.

Get hands-on in your community! From sorting items in our food pantry to reading to children, we have an engaging opportunity for you to give back to San Diego through your time and your talents.
