About Day of Action

Every year, members of our community come together to address the issues that matter the most. They serve on critically needed projects to help our community partner agencies. Sometimes, it’s stuffing backpacks full of books to encourage reading and improve early literacy. Other times, it’s planting community gardens to foster civic pride and promote affordable, healthy eating. Day of Action mirrors the work that United Way does year-round: empowering people to affect positive change in their own backyards, and across the world.

On October 7, 2016, 124 volunteers provided 620 hours of volunteer service through 16 projects at local nonprofit agencies for our biggest Day of Action ever! Thank you to all who so generously committed your time and passion to creating long-lasting solutions that benefit everyone.





Sign up as an idividual, or with your family, friends or co-workers. Dont forget to list your project preferences so that we can match you with a project you will enjoy. All ages are welcome. Volunteers under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Does your agency have a project that needs to be completed or need volunteers to assist one of your daily programs? No worries, just register your project for Day of Action, relax, and let our hard-working volunteers take care of things.
