Who are volunteers at UNITI?

Volunteers at UNITI are the backbone of our community, selflessly dedicating their time and energy to help UNITI thrive. They are the heart and soul of our mission, embodying the spirit of generosity and community support. Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds; they can be students eager to contribute, parents with a passion for making a difference, friends committed to lending a helping hand, or individuals affiliated with other community organizations sharing our vision for positive change.

What do gardening volunteers do? 

UNITI Gardening Volunteers, through their meticulous care and nurturing, create vibrant and welcoming spaces for residents at UNITI partner, Peninsula Estates Housing Society, to enjoy. These well-maintained gardens provide a sense of tranquility, relaxation, and pride for those living in our affordable housing properties, fostering a positive atmosphere within the community.

UNITI Gardening Volunteers contribute to the environmental health of our neighborhoods by promoting biodiversity, attracting pollinators, and improving air quality. Their sustainable gardening practices inspire eco-conscious living and serve as a valuable educational resource for the entire community.

An organization you can trust:  As an organization who has been a part of the community for 64+year, UNITI has seen our area grow and flourish with changes. UNITI’s support and connection to the community is essential. UNITI ensures when we are planning our events, we are thinking of you!
