I've been volunteering with the United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties for more than 3 years and couldn't be happier. The staff and other volunteers are always fantastic and such a joy to work with. The Daytona 5K is always a fun event. It felt amazing to know that I was about to help do such good work and change so many people's lives.
