Join the Live United movement in the Quad Cities and volunteer. We all have special talents. Things we can do to help our community. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, preparing transitional housing units for families, or delivering meals to homebound seniors, there are several volunteer options available every day.

Join more than 1,300 Quad Cities volunteers and get more out or your volunteer experience. View the opportunities at United Way’s Online Matching Site.
