Inayat, grade 10 at Suncoast High School, says this about volunteering with United Way:
“Volunteering for United Way gives me the opportunity to connect with my community. The organization has provided me with an avenue and means to assist and serve, for a cause, that has always been close to my heart. Spending my time as a volunteer allows me to give back to my community and hopefully make a difference to the people I am assisting. It also helps me develop new skills and build on experience and knowledge. It can be a lot of fun too when helping kids pick up school supplies or out with them on a farm, gleaning veggies.”
