Community Impact

Get Involved: UWSC's Community Impact Projects

Creating positive change in our community takes many forms. For some, it's as simple as rolling up their sleeves during United Way of Sumner County's Community Impact Projects.

Whether contributing to collection drives for winter coats and school supplies, serving as a volunteer, or forming a work crew to accomplish improvement tasks at a United Way partner agency, participating in a Community Impact Project is a great way to improve the lives of others.

Our Community Impact Projects provide a meaningful hands-on volunteer experience while giving a first-hand look at the positive change United Way of Sumner County is making right here at home. Whether painting, cleaning, or landscaping, our Community Impact volunteers know the time they donate improves our entire community.

Coat Drive Block


Kids Coat Drive

FROM OCT. 12 - NOV. 5, you can free up closet space while helping local children stay warm through the winter by donating your gently used coats (Ages infant through high-school) to the United Way of Sumner County 2020 Kids Coat Drive. Thanks to the generosity of Signature Cleaners, every donated coat will be cleaned before it is provided to a United Way partner for distribution to local individuals and families facing adversity.

Thank you to Southeastern Building Corporation for providing assistance with the storage and distribution of coats donated to this year's drive.

For complete details, including drop-off sites, visit our Kids Coat Drive page.
