United Way’s National Day of Action on June 21 mobilizes volunteers on the same day, across the nation and in a highly visible way, to inspire people to channel their passion into lifelong action. It is an opportunity for local United Ways to build on their strategies to improve their communities. Volunteerism is a key component of United Way of the River Cities’ work, and for the past few years, National Day of Action has been at the center of the volunteerism piece. Whether it is Stuffing the Bus with food items for school systems, summer food programs or constructing a Born Learning Trail, everyone can get involved. Volunteer your time to make a difference in your community. Visit www.unitedwevolunteer.org for an opportunity near you.
