365 Days of Action

United Way of Northwest Louisiana can help you and your group with volunteer projects that benefit everyone involved, while making a difference to many in need in our local communities. We work with private companies, faith-based groups and service clubs of all sizes to coordinate, schedule, facilitate, and implement a project from start to finish.


Types of Projects

guy-cutting-woodProjects can be on-site at your business location or at a nonprofit organization in our community. Projects that can be completed at your business location are sometimes easier to get more people involved in the project. Examples of corporate projects at a nonprofit organization may include:

  • Cleaning
  • Clerical Work
  • Sorting food and clothing
  • Painting
  • Landscaping

United Way can coordinate the project, purchase the supplies at the best price based on our numerous projects, and match you with an organization that fits your groups passions. Examples:

  • Hygiene kits
  • New mom kits
  • Welcome home kits
  • Art supply kits
  • Snack Packs for children
