Day of Action

June 21st is the summer solstice- the longest day of the year- therefore, the most hours to do good in your community! The United Way Day of Action is an invitation for people and organizations around the world to LIVE UNITED and take action to address a variety of challenges within their communities. On this day, and throughout the entire month of June, we ask you to help us put our mission into action by volunteering, donating, or doing something kind for others to improve the building blocks for a good quality of life – education, financial stability, and health.

Throughout June, the CCCJ and United Way Worldwide encourage you to get out into your community and make a difference!

How can you get involved?

United Way encourages you and your company or organization to cultivate activities that will best serve your community and its needs. Some ideas include…

  • Visit a local nursing home to give out simple gift packs and conduct group activities with the elderly to show care and love
  • Mobilize volunteers to clean up a certain area of your local community, such as a stream in the neighborhood
  • Advocate for Summer Success and the prevention of the Summer Slide in elementary aged children
