United Way of the Columbia-Willamette harnesses the collective power of individual generosity to build strong, connected and engaged communities. The goal is to create change through funded projects in three interconnected focus areas: education, financial stability and health and well-being. Locally founded in 1920, the organization serves the four-county metro area (Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Clark counties). United Way offers everyone the opportunity to create change in the local community through giving, advocating and volunteering.
Staff volunteer in the community throughout the year. The Green Team coordinates an Earth Day volunteer project with staff to highlight different aspects of being sustainable, such as re-purposing household materials at the ReBuilding Center, electronics recycling, and removing invasive plants in Forest Park.
