Interested in volunteering, but not sure where to start – or even what’s available? A new website from United Way of Anchorage makes it easy for you to find out how you can make a difference in Anchorage.
We enjoy our community theater, our great parks, the revitalization of our libraries, and more and more kids staying in school and graduating. Volunteers are the key to these great things about Anchorage. This new website makes it easy to make a difference:
• Go to BeTheChange907.org.
• Browse the needs and opportunities posted by over 50 local organizations.
• ‘Become a Fan’ of the organizations you care about. By sharing your email, when they update their needs, you’ll be the first to know!
Once you’re a fan, you can help spread the word by sharing with your friends and family through Facebook or Twitter.
Volunteering is a great way to meet your neighbors, do something rewarding with your family, and help Anchorage be the city where everyone has the opportunity for a better life.
And if that isn’t enough watch this great video from a group of teens asking, ‘Why aren’t people volunteering?’ BeTheChange907.org
United Way of Anchorage is the leader in mobilizing the resources of individuals, companies, government and labor to achieve positive and lasting change in the lives of the people in our community.
We believe the key to creating lasting change - in people’s lives and in our community - is getting to the source of problems. It’s change that doesn’t come easily or by accident. It’s change that requires clear goals. Leads to true partnerships, with differences and special interests set aside so as to make real progress. Involves actions that are deliberate and data driven.
Our goal is to be strategic, collaborative and efficient. We aim to produce tangible results that advance the common good.
It takes everyone in the community – big businesses, small businesses, elected officials, nonprofits, academia, the faith community, the labor movement, the media, parents and neighbors working together to create a brighter future. We call it living united and we invite you to be a part of it.
