Volunteer Thurston

Volunteering is one of the most amazing gifts you can give your community!


United Way's Volunteer Thurston is your one-stop shop connecting individuals, families, older adults and youth with meaningful ways to volunteer with local nonprofit organizations.


Volunteer Thurston
Every day, ordinary people are accomplishing extraordinary things by volunteering. Check out Volunteer Thurston and learn how you can lend a hand.

If you’re over 55, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) can connect you with meaningful volunteer opportunities that match your skills, experience, and schedule. Whatever your interests, you will make a difference in your community. RSVP volunteers join United Ways in Thurston, Lewis and Mason Counties to focus on Education, Health, and Income – the building blocks for a good quality of life.

Day of Caring
Day of Caring is the single largest day of volunteerism in the county. Join your neighbors as they come together to dedicate time to hands-on projects that help make our community a better place.
