United Way of Lane County knows that by volunteering you are giving us your most valuable asset; your time. So whether you use your lunch hour to tutor a child, trade in your pajamas for a tool belt on a Saturday morning or ask for cans of food instead of presents on your birthday we appreciate you! One hour or one year, days or evenings, weekdays or weekends, Lane County non-profits depend on passionate people like you.
