Volunteer Projects Now Available Through United Way’s “Holiday Helpers”

During this season of giving thanks, many individuals and groups like to share their time to help others. United Way of the Midlands is ready to connect them to a project that will help individuals in need and the organizations that provide them support. Volunteer projects range from sorting donated items to decorating for holiday parties at a variety of great local nonprofit and civic organizations across the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area. Other projects may include: *Serving meals; *Organizing toys and other seasonal items; *Serving as a host or a caroler at holiday-related events; or *Hanging holiday decorations at nonprofit sites.

Participating volunteers are encouraged to share information on their projects through social media, using the hashtag #HolidayHelpers to let people know they, too, can get involved in assisting the great local programs that serve people who live in poverty.

Available projects can be viewed and reserved at www.unitedwaymidlands.org/volunteer. For more information, contact Dani Ohlman at volunteer@uwmidlands.org or call (402) 522-7949.

Nonprofit agencies are invited to submit projects online that take place through December 31.
