In 2020, United Way of Horry County recruited 520 volunteers who provided 3,115 hours of service. Volunteer activities can strengthen the social ties that protect individuals from isolation during difficult times, while the experience of helping others leads to a sense of greater self-worth and trust.
We wanted to show our volunteers how much we appreciated their service. Our Volunteer Victory Celebration was offered as a drop-in event this year. Volunteers were able to stop by for refreshments and a United Way of Horry County branded tumbler cup. It was so exciting to see who would stop by and hear their experience with UWHC – whether they were a seasoned volunteer or brand new to our team!
Check out some of our volunteers who dropped by:
Past Board and Campaign Chair, Cathe Singleton was our first volunteer to stop by!
Caylie McCarthy, from Spann Roofing, volunteered with us for our 2020 Day of Caring event!
We can always count on the ladies from New Directions for support!
Ona Witt was a superstar with our VITA tax program this year. She was the site leader for both the Surfside and Myrtle Beach locations!
Tanya Greenlee, Board member and Finance Chair, is always ready to help out when she is needed.
We hope to have more volunteer opportunities in 2021 and hope to see new faces this year. You can see what upcoming volunteer opportunities are available by visiting our Volunteer page.
