You can come together with your local community and become part of a national movement to break the cycle of poverty as volunteers across the country participate in Day of Action 2018.
Take action and fight to end homelessness when you volunteer at Project Connect. Here, we work with community partners to provide solutions that address the root causes of homelessness and help people start the journey back to health, financial stability, and housing. Services include things like a meal, clothing, showers, job placement, housing assistance, and more. There are several options and shifts available for volunteer opportunities at these events including our greatest need, guest guides, as well as data entry, guest registration, and tear down.
Help kids keep an active mind this summer by providing books for summer reading programs like the Summer Learning Collaborative that work to improve and maintain local students’ reading skills. You can partner with your family or coworkers to begin a book drive and donate your books to a participating Desert Schools branch or contact email@example.com to coordinate a drop-off time at the Valley of the Sun United Way office.
