A: Absolutely. Team leaders should use the links above to sign up their teammates for projects they find interesting and inspiring!
Q: Can my entire workplace team sign up for more than one project or shift (such as a full day)?
A: To make sure we can accommodate as many volunteers as possible, we ask that you and your team members each only sign up for one shift on one project.
Q: Should I bring my own tools or materials?
A: Materials will be available, but United Way encourages you to bring your own gardening supplies and/or construction tools so that we will have enough supplies for everyone. If you bring materials, please mark what you have brought so it can be easily identified at the end of the day!

A: Not at all! Individuals and families are encouraged to participate.

A: United Way requires all participants to be at least 10 years old. Individuals under 18 years old will need a parent/guardian's approval to participate. There is no upper age limit!
Q:I want to participate, but I'm not available on the dates listed, or the projects I'm interested in are already full. What should I do?
