Healthy and want to Volunteer?
Go to Volunteer Missoula to offer your time and energy to those in need. Volunteer Missoula, operated by the Missoula Nonprofit Center and United Way of Missoula County, offers the opportunity to get involved and make a difference. 


You can also use your time by sewing masks:

Local health care providers have asked for homemade/ fabric masks for outpatients (not for medical personnel) to wear home. If you can, sew up some and donate them in the bin on our front porch at United Way, 412 W. Alder. Missoula Textiles is donating the cost of laundering the masks, and we'll make sure they get where they're needed. Our local JoAnn Fabrics (1900 Brooks) has a pattern, cotton fabric and elastic to donate to folks who stop by. HERE's a pattern.


United Way is responding to the current situation caused by COVID-19, and for the foreseeable future, by earmarking all donations to our Emergency/Disaster Assistance Relief fund for COVID-19 Relief. Help now by making a tax-deductible gift. Learn more by going to our COVID-19 Emergency Assistance page
