A Look at This Year's Successful Day of Action
Thanks to all of our hardworking volunteers for choosing to fight to end poverty and joining us for the 2nd annual UNITE: A Day of Action. The hard work of these hand-raisers in our community made a difference for children, individuals, and families across the Valley. We couldn’t do it without you.
In just one day, a group of more than 800 volunteers came together and made this happen:
- 9 schools beautified
- 20 community gardens installed at 5 sites for families to grow food in
- 990 children will be prepared for school with the resources in the School Readiness Kits
- Over 1,200 Encouragement Cards made to inspire our youth
- Kids who may not have access to books at home will receive a new book to add to their personal library with over 200 Book-in-a-Bags
If this is what we can do in just one day, imagine what we can do when we unite against the cycle of poverty all year.
Take a look and see what volunteers throughout Maricopa County did in the video above and peek through our photo album to see if you can spot a volunteer you know.
We look forward to seeing you at our next volunteer event as we continue to fight for our community.
