June 8, 2018 – United Way of Nevada County (UWNC) is planning its 10th annual “Day of Action.” This is a national day of service for United Ways throughout the world; a day to positively change communities. This year, United Way of Nevada County’s “Day of Action” will be held on June 21st. This day of giving back to the community will be a fun and rewarding event for all of the individuals involved. Many projects will be accomplished on this day of collaboration. Projects such as painting, gardening, weeding, organizing, and filing are just an example of some of the different types of projects that will be taking place on the Day of Action.

People from all parts of the community will come together to help the non-profit organizations that work so hard all year round to help the people who need it most. In the past, local businesses such as Telestream, UPS, Texas Instruments, and JC Penney have signed up to volunteer so far. Individual volunteers and families are always welcome to join the fun and help the community during this day of action.
