As United Way’s Hands On Charlotte transitions to a new volunteer model and sunsets the traditional calendar program, sign-ups for individual projects will no longer be offered via the Hands On Charlotte website. However, volunteers can still join these opportunities! Many of the projects will continue to be available as our partner agencies and volunteer leaders create the means to allow volunteers to sign up for them.
