Volunteer work impacts all facets of United Way’s mission. Heart of Florida United Way’s Volunteer Resource Center harnesses the caring power of our community to create lasting change. Overall, 3,358 volunteers contributed 60,667 hours of service, saving local nonprofit agencies over $1.5 million ($1,542,761.81).

Sip & Stuff: A bi-annual volunteer project unique to Women United, Sip n’ Stuff attendees prepared 300 take-home libraries for underperforming preschoolers enrolled in the ReadingPals program. Each student received 25 new books to call their own.

John C. Hitt Internship Program: 80 University of Central Florida students spent months interning and assisting the Heart of Florida United Way team. Many worked in the 2-1-1 Information and Referral Crisisline call center, connecting Central Floridians with vital resources in the community.
