United Way's annual Day of Action is June 21 and we need volunteers like you who want to make a difference.
Day of Action is one fun-filled day of volunteer power. Every year hundreds of volunteers come out to create change in our community.

5 Reasons to Join Day of Action
Volunteering is fun for the whole family.
Want to show your kids the value of community service? When you join Day of Action, you’ll teach them the importance of giving back to their neighbors.
It’s a day full of friends you haven’t met yet
When you’re side-by-side with strangers working for the good of others a natural camaraderie develops. So many of our volunteers have made personal and professional connections that lead to meaningful relationships in their lives.
Giving back boosts well-being
There’s a special spark of good feelings that come from making your community a better place – and the science backs it up! Many studies connect altruism with improved well-being and health.
Volunteering makes you happier.
According to research, people who volunteer are often happier and have greater satisfaction in life. This could be because spending time in philanthropic efforts causes your body to produce endorphins that make you feel good.
It’s an opportunity to act.
We all see things that need to be changed in our community. Day of Action is the chance to do something instead of just talk about doing something. This is your chance to be the change you want to see in the world.
Ready to make your community – and yourself – better, all in one day? Join us on June 21!
