Albemarle High School Cafeteria

We are pleased to announce our first United Way Family Volunteer Day!

It can be hard to find volunteer opportunities appropriate for children under 14. The United Way Family Volunteer Day is a way to help families share the spirit of giving and learn about volunteer opportunities in our community.

Join us on Saturday, June 21st from 10am until 2pm in the cafeteria of Albemarle High School. Several local nonprofits will have manned stations where children can help design blanket squares, knit simple hats, write letters to soldiers, create early literacy kits, make toys for animals and more!

From door prizes to learning about the opportunities to get your family involved year round, it will definitely be fun for the whole family!

We also encourage families to bring new or gently used books for children aged 6 months to twelve years old to donate to the United Way Book Drive.
