Volunteering benefits everyone – the volunteers, their employers, and the community. Individuals who volunteer in their community are 30 percent happier and satisfied with their lives, according to research. Companies and businesses that incorporate volunteerism in the work place consistently report a higher level of employee satisfaction, morale and team effectiveness.

The Tulsa Area United Way’s volunteers are the cornerstone of its operations, with community members executing crucial processes and assisting the community throughout the year.
