Working to End Homelessness in Maryland
Friday, October 5th – United Way of Frederick County’s Day of Action
Every year, members of the Frederick County community come together to address the issues that matter the most. They serve on critically needed projects to help our community partner agencies. Sometimes, it’s stuffing backpacks full of books to encourage reading and improve early literacy. Other times, it’s planting community gardens to foster civic pride and promote affordable, healthy eating. Day of Action mirrors the work that United Way does year-round: empowering people to affect positive change in their own backyards, and across the world.
Grab your friends, family members, and coworkers to make an impact where it’s needed most. Enjoy a day filled with volunteering, food, and fun.
