Close to seventy companies are members of the Corporate Volunteer Council which is a program coordinated by Valley United Way's Volunteer Center. The group's enthusiasm, skill and community spirit is leaving an indelible mark on the Valley and improving the quality of life through their everyday efforts that demonstrate that they and their employees care about the community in which they live and work.

The purpose of the CVC is:

1. Networking: Providing a way for companies operating corporate volunteer programs to exchange information and help other companies in the community start corporate volunteer programs.

2. Community-needs identification: It provides a forum where member companies can learn about community needs for employee volunteers. Information is transmitted when the CVC invites a local nonprofit agency to present information on its need for volunteers during a regularly scheduled CVC meeting.

3. Joint Projects: It provides a way for member companies to work together on a community need or problem that is too large or complex for one company to handle alone. Currently active ongoing projects include:

Since 1994 the CVC has also taken on major projects on an annual basis. The two annual projects are the Week of Caring projects which generally involve a very hands on "construction and renovation" project for an area nonprofit organization and the Back to School Clothes for Kids Project which adopts the neediest children in one Valley grammar school providing children with back to school clothing and encouragement for a successful start to the new academic year.
