Sign up to be a Golden Wishes Volunteer
United Way of Miami-Dade

United Way's Golden Wishes makes dreams a reality for older adults age 60+ in Miami-Dade County. As Miami-Dade residents are living longer and healthier lives, we are finding new ways to honor, celebrate and maximize contributions for older adults. Through Golden Wishes, United Way teams up with nonprofits and community groups to grant wishes for special adults age 60+ who are unable to pursue a wish on their own. Wishes are co-created with agencies, companies, churches, civic groups and others. Together, we aim to celebrate older adults that continue to go above and beyond for their families, friends and community – or those that need a little extra help to overcome a barrier. With every wish, we celebrate positive aging. We are currently searching for volunteers who are able to fulfill one or more of the following wishes. Once a wish date is confirmed, we will reach out to all of those who signed up to coordinate next steps. -Living Room makeover (may include painting, decorating, building new furniture) -Coordinate a socially-distant family reunion gathering -Build a community garden
