Help Everyone in Roanoke Valley Thrive

Your donation helps more people thrive. Thank you for making our community stronger!

Give. Advocate. Volunteer.


Behind all of our work, there are people like you - donors and volunteers - who raise their hands to ensure a better future for individuals and families in our community.

It takes all of us, working together, to create lasting change in our community.

If together we sink and together we swim, we all win when a child succeeds in school, when a neighborhood becomes safer and when families are stable. Now is the time to come together and accomplish what no single person can do alone because to live better, we must SHOW UP UNITED.

Volunteering is a fun and deeply rewarding experience where you can make immediate and lasting change by improving lives and helping our community thrive.

Day of Action

No matter where your interest or your ability, you can make an impact. Each year, United Way of Roanoke Valley invites the community businesses out for a full day of volunteerism to give back by working on projects and providing helping hands to local nonprofit agencies and individuals in need of assistance. Get a team together and join in the fun for Day of Action.


Every day, ordinary people are accomplishing extraordinary things by volunteering at our events! Encourage your employees to give an hour. Provide sponsorship dollars. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.



There’s no volunteer opportunity that’s too big or small. We can accommodate groups of any size for customized, full-day service opportunities throughout the year.
