Find Your Local United Way


Throughout the year, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey hosts a number of volunteer events through which our donors, volunteers and partner companies can volunteer, network, raise awareness, and support our work to ensure children succeed in school, families are financially stable, and all community members are safe and healthy.

Signature Events:


Each year, United Way and Cradles to Crayons team up to help children start the school year off right by mobilizing hundreds of volunteers to stuff backpacks with school supplies.

365 Days of Caring Signature Site

This annual service project event kicks off United Way’s 365 Days of Caring, a civic engagement initiative and year-round effort to achieve collective action through corporate volunteerism.


To address food insecurity, United Way partners with food agencies in a large-scale event where hundreds of volunteers pack thousands of meal kits for distribution to families in need throughout the region.
