United Way is eager to involve the community in shaping our evolving understanding of local needs and assets. If you or your organization are interested in being part of our ongoing listening work we want you on our team. We are particularly interested in hearing the voices of individuals who are less likely to be heard in community forums. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 507-287-2000 for more information or to volunteer with United Way of Olmsted County.

Senior Companions are volunteers age 55 and over who make a difference by providing assistance and friendship to adults who have difficulty with daily living tasks, such as shopping or paying bills. We help these adults remain independent in their homes instead of having to move to more costly institutional care.

Do you have 15 minutes to spare? We are looking for volunteers willing to drop by Dunkin’ Donuts in the morning before 10 a.m. to pick up donuts and drop them off at our community center. Any donuts that do not sell on the day they are made are donated to The Salvation Army so that we can offer them as breakfast for any of our community members in need. Email Rebecca_Snapp@usc.SalvationArmy.org or call 507-288-3663 for more information or to volunteer with Rochester Salvation Army.
