Day of Action
Day of Action is a global call to action held each year on the first day of summer — the longest day of the year — for volunteers to unite to address community challenges.
In 2018, we’re going to change it up a bit. From June 1st through June 15th we’re holding a diaper drive called, Taking Care of the Bottom Line. United Way will be collecting diapers for all ages – infancy to elderly.
United Way of Williamson County’s Day of Action will address the issue of providing diapers for families and seniors struggling to make ends meet. Government safety-net programs do not recognize diapers as a basic need so they cannot be purchased with food stamps (SNAP). Most child care centers require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers (four to six changes a day).
You can start collecting at any time. Your diaper donations may be dropped off at United Way’s offices starting June 1st. After June 15th donations will be distributed to Partner Agencies.
