The holiday season is a time for giving, sharing, and spreading joy to those in need. In the spirit of community and generosity, the United Way of the Midlands is proud to present the Holiday Helpers Volunteer Program, offering various opportunities for individuals to make a meaningful impact from now through December 31, 2023. This initiative not only provides a chance for volunteers to contribute their time but also invites participation through collection drives and wish list purchases, all aimed at bringing warmth and joy to Pottawattamie County in Iowa, as well as Douglas and Sarpy Counties in Nebraska.
The heart of the Holiday Helpers program lies in the diverse array of volunteer opportunities available. Whether you have a few hours to spare or want to dedicate more time to a worthy cause, there's a role for everyone. From “adopt a family Christmas gift distribution” to providing meals for homeless youth, volunteers can engage in activities that resonate with their interests and skills. The program is designed to foster a sense of community and connection while making a positive impact on the lives of others during the holiday season. Check out the open opportunities by visiting the United Way of the Midlands website!
