YOU can make great things happen in YOUR community!

Activities range from online advocacy and small-group, single-day events to large-scale, communitywide programs at multiple locations. Here's how YOU can get involved:

VOLUNTEER with United Way of Passaic County!
Join United Way of Passaic County on June 7th for this year's signature and second annual Day of Action Event. Unite with businesses, community groups and individuals to create summer bags for children to encourage learning and promote healthy activities throughout the summer months! Volunteers will pack 2500 “Stay Fit. Stay Smart” summer bags filled books, pencils & fun active gear. Partner agencies throughout Passaic County will distribute bags at their summer programs for at-risk children. Fresh produce will also be provided to families of the children receiving the "Stay Fit. Stay Smart." bags as part of our efforts to assure everyone has access to affordable healthy foods. We are on a mission to make summer fun for all our kids!
Thanks to a host of volunteers, corporate sponsors and partner agencies, United Way of Passaic County's Day of Action is a huge success! On Friday, June 7th, volunteers packed over 2500 summer bags for at-risk children filled with books, pencils, bookmarks, hydration bottles & healthy living activities. Partner agencies will be distributing the bags at the start of their summer programs to encourage students to keep reading and keep active all summer long. Late in the afternoon, UPS delivered the bulk of the bags to Paterson and Passaic sites for distribution.
A big THANK YOU to our sponsors, our partners and everyone who participated to make this summer great for our kids! Check out this photo gallery for a look back on this wonderful experience! Stay tuned as we report back on how our partner agencies are using these "Stay Fit. "Stay Smart." bags in their programs this summer.
