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.
