United Way of Larimer County is moving in June 2019. In preparation for the move, Service To Go and Community Service projects will not be accepted June 1- July 8, 2019. You will need to schedule an appointment time before May 31 or after July 7, 2019 to turn in your projects and complete any paperwork.
Due to limited storage space in our facility, you must schedule an appointment to drop off your project. Projects will not be accepted outside of your scheduled appointment time. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Do you have a great idea for a volunteer project that you would like to coordinate? United Way of Larimer County is here to help you manage a project that best suits you and helps the community.
Please note that United Way of Larimer County is now a locked facility due to our expansion partnership with Teaching Tree. To enquire about or drop off Service-to-Go projects, you must make an appointment by emailing email@example.com.
We’ve put together a few resources below to get you started with your project. Please continue reading and review the Frequently Asked Questions document for more information.
Once you register for a project, using the links below, instructions will be emailed to you within one business day.
Service To Go projects are ongoing, fun DIY projects that can be completed anywhere, anytime. They can be implemented on-site at your business, school, faith based group, or home, and they provide meaningful resources for individuals, families, and children in need. United Way of Larimer County works with local nonprofits to identify ongoing needs in the community. Projects range from “thinking of you” cards for homebound citizens, to first aid kits and fleece scarves for homeless individuals, to alphabet flashcards and joke books for children staying at a local shelter. Your contribution makes a powerful impact!

These projects help provide a little something extra, so families can free up funds for other important items:
