The Greater Longview United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, and health: the building blocks for a good life. But we can't do it alone. We need the heads, hands, and hearts of committed people like you to help us. We all have special talents, things we can do to help. From helping in our fundraising campaign to providing free tax preparation, GLUW has the volunteer opportunity that is right for you and your company.
