Do Your Part for United Way's Fifth Annual Day of Action on June 21!

On Thursday, United Way chapters around the globe will be doing what they do best: bringing local communities together with the organization's fifth annual “Day of Action.”

In June of 2011, 250 cities throughout the U.S. hosted Day of Action events benefiting more than 240,000 individuals in need as a direct result of United Way's extensive efforts to build cross-sector partnerships, raise awareness and recruit volunteers.

According to United Way Worldwide, "June 21 is the day we stand up for ourselves, our friends, families and communities and pledge to change the course of our future."
