Give help after a Hurricane

As the county’s official volunteer and fundraising arm, United Way of Miami-Dade, will be here for our community before, during and after an emergency.

We specialize in bringing people together to reach out in the event of a disaster, whether through donations of money, time or goods.


Operation Helping Hands — Following a disaster, the best way to get help to those who need it – fast – is to donate money that agencies working in the affected areas can distribute. United Way of Miami-Dade partners with The Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald and Univision 23 to activate Operation Helping Hands to support both immediate and long term recovery needs.


VolunteerMiami – Powered by United Way of Miami-Dade, it will post pre- and post-disaster related volunteer opportunities.


Several municipalities and organizations are collecting donated goods to send to victims of natural disasters. Click on the links below to view more details for each.
