Day of Action: A Community-Wide Volunteer Opportunity


On June 21, United Way, its partners, and community volunteers will join together to help Franklin Special School District prep for the 2019–2020 school year.

United Way’s Day of Action is a global call for organizations and people to Live United, harness the volunteer spirit, and take action in their communities. Day of Action is held on the first day of summer — the longest day of the year — for volunteers to tackle single-day to large-scale to community projects.

This is a day that we ask the community to help us put our mission into action by volunteering to improve the building blocks of a good quality of life: education, health, and financial stability.

This year, our Day of Action volunteers will gather at the Poplar Grove and Freedom Intermediate school campuses to assist with window cleaning, painting, general cleaning, and landscaping around the grounds. There’s something for everyone to do, and volunteers of all ages are welcome to sign-up.

All volunteers must register online (four shifts are available) and complete a Volunteer Waiver form.

We encourage you to share your Day of Action experience on social media. Be sure to use #UWDayofAction when posting to connect your community work to United Way and other volunteers around the world! Follow us at:
