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. Group projects are fun and provide opportunities to get to know each other better while helping others in our community.


Company benefits:

  • Help to build brand awareness and publicity
  • Strengthen trust and loyalty among customers
  • Put a face to a company
  • Provides a team building exercise while helping others

Employee benefits:

  • Experience greater job satisfaction
  • Improved employee morale
  • Put a face to a company
  • Increased teamwork and job performance


Projects 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

On-site projects are generally assembling kits for local programs and can require a donation drive first or a small budget to provide the items necessary for the kits. Kits can be used for multiple nonprofit organizations or for your group to use to distribute to family shut-ins, nursing homes, day care centers, or other group you are involved with. 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 of kit projects and possible items may include:

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