Get Involved

United Way of Anderson County partners with knowledgeable, well-trained volunteers to fulfill our mission. We need the heads, hands, and hearts of committed people like you to help us tackle the problems facing our community. Each one of us has special talents and unique skills to offer. Put your talents to work. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all, and help is always needed. Whether it’s reading to children, leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families, or delivering meals to homebound seniors, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day.
Give the gift of you. Volunteer.

Fund Distribution Panel Reviews

This is where the rubber meets the road.  Panels of community volunteers visit agencies applying to receive United Way dollars. Panel members review all grant request documents and conduct site visits for 5-6 agencies. Once visits are completed, reports are prepared and given to the panel chairs for final allocation recommendations. Time commitment is typically a 2-hour training and one, 8-hour day for agency site visits. Panel visit dates are listed below. Please contact Naomi Asher for more info about this important role in our annual campaign.
