Large Scale Volunteer Experiences

Main Content

United Way is an expert in leading custom, large-scale volunteer experiences that connect your employees, customers, and stakeholders to the needs of the community. 

Adding a volunteer component to your next annual meeting, company picnic, or corporate anniversary celebration will not only make an impact in the community, but help attendees connect with each other.

Your event does not need to be at one physical location or on one day; United way can seamlessly excute a multi-market experience across the nation.

What does the process look like?

United Way will:

  • Set up 1-2 planning meetings with you to capture your vision.
  • Create a proposal for the project for your approval.
  • Manage purchasing and all other project logistics.
  • Provide day-of support.
  • Share the impact of project.

Successful Experiences

Baird's Annual Meeting

"United Way was a critical resource in helping bring to life one of Baird's core principles at our Annual Meeting – giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Sydney and her team help manage the logistics and distribution of packing over 1,000 backpacks for local schools. They were professional, friendly, and responsive throughout the planning process and assisted with the on-site execution of the packing. Without their support, our celebration wouldn't have been so successful."

Derse's Multi-market Diaper Drive

"Derse was very excited to team up with United Way to have our entire company participate in our first ever Diaper Drive. This experience to place at 5 different cities throughout the United States where Derse has operations. The metropolitan areas of Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee all benefitted via our partnership with United Way in raising over 100,000 baby diapers and wipes that were distributed throughout the communities in which we operate. It was a pleasure and we look forward to doing something similar in 2023."

Kohler's Company Picnic

"At Kohler, we believe our best can always be better. Together with United Way, Kohler strives to positively impact the quality of health, education, and financial stability of the communities where we all live and serve. United Way provides meaningful opportunities for our associates to contribute their passions and talents to support and strengthen their communities. The United Way team inspired, coordinated, and leveraged their expertise to organize a volunteer backpack build for thousands of our associates during our summer picnic. With United Way's facilitation, Kohler associates packed over 1,000 backpacks to support children as they began their school year. Our small team could not have pulled this event off without their partnership. United, we are hope in action!"
