About Day of Action

Every year, members of the Frederick County 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 6, 2017, 302 volunteers provided 1,802 hours of volunteer service through 24 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.
