United Way Asks Volunteers, Community Members to Unite for Week of Service to Help Break the Cycle of Poverty
PHOENIX (August 15, 2017) – It’s a simple fact: We have a greater impact when we work UNITED. That’s why Valley of the Sun United Way is inviting volunteers to come together for a week of service culminating with the Day of Action on Saturday, September 16.
Community members can learn more about the events and sign up at vsuw.org/volunteer.
B-roll available upon request.
Volunteers will assemble school readiness kits (SRK’s), participate in an elementary school mural painting, school beautification projects, installing and planting a fall garden in community neighborhoods and schools, or even help to distribute smoke detectors to residents in the town of Guadalupe.
MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND AND FILM THE EVENT. For additional information on what will take place, contact Jamie Killin at (480) 710 -5270.
