Day of Action: June 21, 2019
Each year, United Ways across the country participate in a national day of service called Day of Action. It's the perfect opportunity to roll up your sleeves and let your actions speak louder than words. It's the perfect way to show, by example, what it means to LIVE UNITED.
In conjunction with Day of Action, United Way of 1000 Lakes coordinates a community-wide Personal Care Drive throughout June, to help children and adults at risk of meeting their basic needs. The care items will be redistributed throughout the community to help disconnected youth, veterans, and the homeless.
Day of Action Projects
United Way of 1000 Lakes has partnered with Itasca County Habitat for Humanity and the Itasca County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) to help residents in the Oakland Addition care and maintain their homes.
Projects can include:
- Yard: leaf-raking, landscaping, gardening, pruning
- Exterior: window washing, painting, installing ramps and grab bars
- Minor Repairs: steps, doors, windows, roof
- General Clean-up: dispose of items such as garbage, mattresses, old appliances and electronics
