United Way Day of Action is an opportunity for communities to come together and address the issues that matter most to them. For some, it’s stuffing backpacks full of books to encourage reading and improve early literacy. For others, it’s planting community gardens to foster civic pride and promote affordable, healthy eating. In that sense, Day of Action mirrors the work that United Way does year-round: empowering people to affect positive change in their own backyards, and across the world.

On United Way's Day of Action for Seniors we ask you to help us put our mission into action by volunteering to improve the building blocks for a good quality of life – education, financial stability, and health.

On November 3rd, teams of volunteers will go to homes of senior citizens throughout Berrien and Cass counties to rake leaves, clean gutters, and check smoke detectors.
