How you can make a difference on Day of Action

June 10, 2019

By Brenna DeBlasio


Are you a changemaker in your community looking for a way to get involved this summer? If so, you should join United Way for Day of Action, June 21. This celebration is an opportunity for people and organizations across the globe to take action to address a variety of community challenges. This year, United Way of Northeast Florida is focusing on meeting comprehensive basic needs by teaming up with Farm Share, Feeding Northeast Florida, and United Way of St. Johns County to focus efforts on food insecurity in our five-county area. Community members will come together to sort and distribute food to those in need with a goal of distributing food to over 1,000 local families.

Here’s how you can make a difference on Day of Action:

Invest your time

Volunteers are needed to help sort food in the days leading up to Day of Action as well as with food distribution June 21. Food distributions will take place in multiple locations across the five-county region, so you can choose an area that works best for you.



Invest your dollars

Can’t find a convenient time to volunteer? You can support the work of United Way and its partners by making a gift. Every $100 gift can provide 20 people access to critical basic needs such as sustainable housing, social safety net systems, gender equality and the fight to end hunger.



Join the movement

Day of Action is one of many days throughout the year to invest in your community. Join the movement for a stronger Northeast Florida year round by discovering more ways you can get involved.
