Day of Action

YOU can make great things happen in YOUR community!

Each June, United Way offices around the world invite their communities to improve the conditions in which they live by volunteering with United Way.  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:
