Every year, all 1,200 United Way organizations nationwide and several global locations hold a Day of Action. This day seeks to provide opportunities for individuals and groups to serve their community, and this year they are focusing on the needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic. This Friday, June 19, Greensboro will celebrate its 2020 Day of Action.
There are plenty of opportunities to get involved this year! Backpack Beginnings needs volunteers to sort through donations. The Greensboro Urban Ministries center needs volunteers to sort through their hygiene product donations. These groups are following guidelines from the CDC and keeping in-person interactions to a minimum. If you would rather stay at home, there are opportunities to make cards for senior citizens, donate items for Family Success Center members, or donate handbags to their END Poverty program to be auctioned off in October. Visit their site to see how you can help!
