FEATURED VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
VITA volunteers provide free income tax assistance to thousands of individuals and families with a household income of approximately $60,000 a year or less in Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties. No experience is necessary and free training and resources are provided for all volunteers. Apply here.
Gifts-in-Kind Center (GIKC)
Our Gifts-in-Kind Center receives deliveries of returned, damaged, and unsold merchandise from Walmart every day. Monday through Thursday mornings, committed volunteers unload and sort these donated goods so local agencies can come to the GIKC and “shop” for products to support their missions. Apply below to become a weekly volunteer at the GIKC.
Community Investment Process (CIP)
United Way of the Piedmont invests in programs that tackle the most complex issues facing Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties through the Community Investment Process. The process is driven by donor volunteers, who ensure the sound investment of funds entrusted to us by studying all of the programs and making investment recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors. If you are a donor and are interested in being part of the Community Investment Process, apply below.
