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.
This year the Finney County United Way, along with several other businesses and agencies, will be collecting new or gently used children’s books from June 1st thru June 21st. On June 21st, which is the official National Day of Action, the books will be collected, sorted and then distributed to local schools and early childhood centers.
