Impact Days –

Volunteer With Us

In addition to our 100 ways to show support in the community, we’re also hosting a two-day volunteering event with various opportunities to serve. During these Impact Days, the United Way of Greater Chattanooga will work with local volunteers through projects purposed to better our community. We know this will be an undertaking, and we need your help!

We’re on a mission.

And we need your help.

United Way of Greater Chattanooga and its volunteers have worked to make a positive impact in our city for 100 years now. For the next 100 days, you can help us continue this good work by completing even just one of the 100 simple acts of service to show kindness in your community.

At the end of this 100-day stretch, United Way is hosting a two-day event packed full of amazing volunteer opportunities for community members. These two Impact Days, September 16th and 17th, will culminate in a block party celebration of our centennial.

Together We Can Change the World
