Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Cards of Encouragement

You are invited to share positive messages
with others in our community.

United Way volunteers can pass along their care and encouragement to the healthcare workers, teachers, older adults and other individuals in our community who help people live happy and healthy lives.

How it Works

Email with your name, the name of your group (if applicable) and the anticipated number of cards to be created. 

United Way will send you printable templates to write your message and provide you with instructions on where to send the cards. 

Once you have the templates, we encourage you to get creative! Write a heartfelt thank you, invite children to contribute notes – people of all ages can participate in this meaningful activity.

 3,107 cards sent by United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg through more than 200 organizations

Numbers from July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023
