Day of Action: June 21, 2018
Each year, United Ways across the country participate in a nationwide 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.
United Way of 1000 Lakes is coordinating several hands on projects from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.), as well as a community-wide Personal Care Drive June 1st- 21st, to help vulnerable children and adults at risk of meeting their basic needs, including personal care products. The care items will be redistributed to United Way’s nonprofit partners serving disconnected youth, veterans and the homeless throughout the Itasca area.

- Grand Rapids Farmer's Market - Various grounds beautification projects from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Klockow Brewing Company - Family-friendly speed volunteering opportunities, live music, and food trucks beginning at 3 p.m.
