Volunteer for Day of Action June 23!
On and around June 23, more than 30,000 people in over 400 communities around the world will volunteer with United Way to make their community stronger through Day of Action – a day where United Ways across the country create meaningful activities centered on specific challenges in their communities.
Did you know that of the nearly 1.3 million children living in Greater Atlanta’s 13-county region, close to half a million live in communities with low or very low child well-being? We’re looking to change that. Through our Child Well-Being Agenda, we’re working to improve the lives of more than 250,000 children by 2027. Getting every child in the community on the path to fulfilling his or her potential requires that we all work together toward a single, shared agenda to move the needle on child well-being. We need a shared vision of success strategies for how to achieve it and unified measures to set goals and evaluate progress.
This year’s Day of Action will focus on improving the lives of children, families and communities across Greater Atlanta. We’re galvanizing volunteers across our 13-county region for 14 volunteer opportunities are available at United Way partners agencies including:
-Carrie Steele Pitts Home
-Keep North Fulton Beautiful
-Foster Care Support Foundation
-Ronald McDonald House (Egleston)
-Center for Pan Asian Community Services
-Link Counseling Center
-Historic Westside Gardens
-Bloom Our Youth
Click here to volunteer with us June 23 as we band together and harness the power of a community that cares about the lives of its children and families. We can’t do it without you!
