Project Description

We invite all Michigan State alumni, including our area families, students, faculty/staff and MSU Extension educators, along with our university community partners and friends, to please join us as “Spartans Serve” community volunteers for just a day or more.

Volunteer opportunities are ongoing - one time, daily, weekly, monthly or throughout the year.

Together with United Way of Northwest Michigan’s Volunteer Center, volunteers will explore dozens of everyday community needs, along with a host of community service projects, non-profit agencies and faith-community sponsors.

Here's a “sample” of the United Way Volunteer Center’s many in-person and virtual (online) current community needs and service projects:

  • Hand Sew Book Bags
  • Health Care Team Thank You Notes
  • Habitat ReStore Restocking
  • COVID-19 Hagerty Vaccination Center Greeters
  • Reining Liberty Ranch Veterans’ Garden Helpers
  • Day of Caring Virtual “5K Acts of Kindness”
  • Inland Seas Education TallShip Crew Member
  • Safe Harbor Shelter Host
  • Goodwill Inn Kitchen Prepping
  • Take 5 Minutes to Reach Out to a Neighbor or Friend
  • And many, many more needs!

At the United Way Volunteer Center’s website, feel free to explore and “sort” volunteer opportunities by family friendly (children and adults), date + location and time, outdoors, at home, wheelchair accessible, sponsoring group and much more.

We invite you to join our Grand Traverse Area “Spartans Serve” volunteer roster by taking these next steps: 1) register here and; 2) sign-up and register as a United Way volunteer using the link in the community partner accommodations section below.
