Day of Action

Day of Action

Each year, we hold United Way Day of Action--galvanizing volunteers across our community.

Friday, Sept. 4, 2020

This year we did something a little different.

A few small in-person groups worked in our community.  They were careful to be safe, keeping their distance from each other and (mostly) working outdoors.

There are always ways to help in the community!

Want to help, but wary of being in a group?

May we suggest a more do-it-yourself approach? Help make our community better by taking action in your neighborhood. Look below for a list of projects to choose from-or do what you know needs doing in your neck of the woods.

Ways To Help

Even though we can't all gather together, we can still make a difference. Here are some ways you might help out in our town:

What is Day of Action?

Day of Action is a community wide day of hands-on volunteering.  United Way of Missoula County connects volunteers from local businesses with local nonprofit organizations and our own programs to complete various projects, like painting, clean-up, yard work, etc.

United Way Day of Action demonstrates how volunteerism is vital to our community.  It empowers people to work together to address some of the community’s most urgent needs.  The event provides a firsthand look at the services offered in our community. The hands-on volunteer experiences provide excellent opportunities for employee team-building.  It also spotlights United Way of Missoula County’s role in bringing volunteers together to advance the common good for all.  Volunteer teams from local businesses that wish to participate in the Day of Action will be matched with projects submitted by our nonprofit partners.
