Volunteer Now

Let’s connect thousands of South Texas volunteers to meaningful service projects right here at home!

How to Volunteer:

Over the past several years, the United Way of South Texas has been approached by Community Partners and Partner Agencies for a user-friendly, web-database, where volunteers can connect with social service agencies and other organizations.  This will give organizations an easy way to advertise Volunteer opportunities, In-kind needs and Special events.

Potential community volunteers will have the option to browse what their needs are. Once they determine their needs they will be able to register and will automatically be notified of specific opportunities.

The Volunteer South Texas portal will be accessed from the Volunteer Now button below and we will “Go Live” on October 1, 2015.

The volunteer portal will be user-friendly and will provide easy internet access. Individuals will be able to volunteer his/her talents and non-profit agencies, businesses, and governmental organizations will be able recruit.  This service is open to all individuals and organizations in Hidalgo and Starr Counties.

Whether you are a social service agency that needs volunteers to help serve meals, a school that wants to offer after-school tutoring, or even an animal shelter that needs more people to help exercise your “clients,” you will be able to easily post the Need and wait for those responses to pour in!

Please join United Way of South Texas in its mission to “improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community to advance the common good.”
