What You Can Do

Give

When you give to United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton, you’re doing a world of good for your community. Why? Because with your one donation, you are investing in programs that provide care for the elderly, after school programs for children, preventative care for infants, counseling for the mentally ill or addicted, affordable housing, and food and utilities for people struggling to make ends meet.

Advocate

Anyone can champion the cause. Whether you’re speaking out to improve education, income and health, reaching out to members of Congress, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.

So go ahead and advocate in a LIVE UNITED world.

Do it in public. Be visible. Be loud.

Volunteer

Volunteering has more rewards than you can imagine.  Whether it’s reading to a child, mentoring a young adult, spending time with the elderly or helping out at a food pantry/kitchen we all can touch a life.

It doesn’t take much to volunteer beyond a desire to help and a little time.  Give an hour, a day or a week, whatever you can and make a difference.

For volunteer opportunities in your community contact the Mass 211 Info/Referral Line 24/7 by dialing “211 from any phone.  Tell them you are looking to volunteer and would like to know who in your community has opportunities.  You may also search their website by clicking the Mass 211 link on this website’s home page, keyword “volunteer opportunities”.
