Live United Day
Live United Day is a volunteer day of action in April for the Northwest Arkansas community. It is one of the largest one-day volunteer efforts of the year, and takes place during National Volunteer Week. Local volunteers are paired with nonprofits to complete much needed projects in Benton, Washington and Madison counties in Northwest Arkansas.
Fill The Bus
United Way volunteers and staff spend shifts of two hours throughout the first weekend of August, filling the bus with school supplies at all the Walmart Supercenters in Benton, Madison, and Washington counties in Northwest Arkansas.
Community Investment Grant Committee
Local donors make it possible for United Way to maximize the impact of our nonprofit partners, and people just like you determine where those donations go. Our community grants are reviewed by volunteers on the Community Investment Grant Committee, which represents a cross-sector of the community, including business, philanthropy, academia, and healthcare. Join us to help determine how United Way dollars are invested in our local community!
