Volunteers are the backbone of our work in the Mat-Su. Coming together to lend a helping hand, wherever help is needed. Tackling projects across the Valley. Creating a better, healthier, safer place for us all to live.

Applications for 2023 Week of Caring projects are now open!

Week of Caring 2023: May 22-26, daily from 9am-4pm.

Are you a Valley nonprofit with a spring project that needs to be completed? UWMS’ teams of community volunteers stand ready to help you with work that might otherwise go unfinished. Week of Caring pairs these volunteers with Valley nonprofits on a day of their choice, during the week of May 22-25, for a widespread volunteerism effort that benefits residents, agencies, and their clients across the Mat-Su.
