The United Way Worldwide system observes June 21st as “United Way Day of Action” with events and activities designed to raise awareness, resources, and advocacy to support improvements in education, financial stability and health in local communities.
Read more about the worldwide effort and steps you can take online through facebook and twitter to support this important work here. Today is also a great day to call a local nonprofit to serve as a volunteer, or see what volunteer opportunities you can find at Volunteer Mid-South.
Here in our region, United Way is participating with our friends at Memphis Light, Gas and Water in their United Way Golf Tournament today (weather permitting), and our staff will kick off our employee campaign (where United Way employees raise money among themselves for the United Way fundraising drive) as part of Day of Action activities.
We hope to share photos from the golf tournament and United Way employee campaign drive later this week here at the United Way News Center.
