Holiday Giving Guide
You can choose to LIVE UNITED this holiday season by giving back to organizations in need in our community. What better way to spread holiday cheer than by helping an area non-profit? United Way of Fort Smith Area has made it easy for you to know how to get involved. The 2023 Holiday Giving Guide provides a list of ways to help others this holiday season. This would be a great team-building opportunity for companies as well as a great way to get your children involved in helping those in need in our community.
In the guide, you will find a list of materials, supplies, and volunteer services the participating organizations need. The activities, arranged alphabetically by organization name, show the tremendous need for volunteers and resources in our area. You should contact them as early as possible in the season because the volunteer activities get filled quickly.
