Make A Difference Day:   Spring 2015

Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. 

United Way of Alamance County will be Celebrating Volunteerism during National Volunteer Week, April 12-18 2015.

We recently solicited projects from local non-profits and schools.  We are now leading a challenge for residents, businesses, churches and organizations to, "Make a Difference" during National Volunteer Week by making connections with local non-profits and schools by signing up for one-time projects (that hopefully lead to long-term partnerships!)

This initiative is intended to inspire our community to pursue creative ways to engage with others and solve problems.  We believe that we have the ability to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals by working together.

United Way of Alamance County strives to be at the center of social change - discovering and demonstrating the collective power we have when we Live United.
