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 Friday October 5, over 350 volunteers came together to give their and energy to the Frederick community for our Annual Day of Action 2018. With 25 projects varying in skill and degree of intensity including painting, mulching, power-washing, furniture building and much more, our volunteers made a HUGE impact. Together, we contributed about 1.850 hours to our community.
