Our supporters often want to make more than a financial contribution to our community. Through our Community Donation Warehouse, we build relationships with corporate and logistics partners, creating a community-based solution giving new life to unused inventory. The program enables United Way to further support agencies in achieving their missions, while enhancing the scope and impact of our own work. Learn more about the program here.

Volunteer opportunities at the Community Donation Warehouse are available now! Connect with Gavan Badh for more information on making a donation or volunteering gbadh@uwhh.ca.

Hearing a personal story from a United Way speaker is an excellent way for employees and donors to learn about the impact their donations make in community. Invite a United Way speaker, including agency staff and program participants, to your campaign kick-off, town hall, lunch and learn, or other fundraising events. Speakers Bureau volunteers can present virtually and share their stories of working on the frontlines and of lives changed because by United Way-supported programs.
