2024 Day of Action - Coming Soon!

Day of Action is United Way's annual corporate volunteer event.
Each year we mobilize corporate volunteers to complete service projects that support our mission in the three focus areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Healthy Living.
This is a great team building day of volunteer engagement for local businesses.
We hope to see you and your work mates here this year to help make great impact in our community, grow your team spirit and have a lot of fun!

Last year the 2023 Day of Action mobilized corporate volunteers who worked on service projects that supported our mission 
in our three focus areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Healthy Living.

Corporate volunteers participated in various projects that made a great impact in our community. 

Projects Completed:

  • Welcome Home Kit Assembly Project - 120 kits were assembled and distributed to member agencies serving low- to moderate-income households as they move into permanent, safe, and sustainable housing.
  • Literacy Kit Assembly Project - 200 kits were assembled and distributed to community partners to provide early learning resources to local children in need, ensuring they are ready for kindergarten and beyond.
  • Little Free Library Build Project - RUW in partnership with Little Free Library works to build a community, inspire readers, and expand book access for all through a global network of volunteer-led Little Free Library book exchange boxes.
  • Toilet Paper Distribution Project - 960 toilet rolls, generously donated by our friends at Publix, were collected, counted, and distributed through our partner agencies.  A vital household item that can be very expensive for local ALICE households living on a fixed budget.
  • Pride Candy Project - 200+ candy items were branded with rainbow stickers.  These items will be distributed by our staff at local Pride events throughout the month of June.
