Take Action From Home
June 21 is the longest day of the year, and for the second year in a row, United Way encourages local residents to participate in the National Day of Action.  With that little bit of extra daylight, we ask you to take action by helping your community, both local and world-wide, from the comfort of your own home. 
Not to be confused with the annual Day of Caring, the National Day of Action is a call for everyone to LIVE UNITED.  Give, advocate, or volunteer- it's your choice.  Be a part of something bigger - a nationwide movement for change.  We are asking for your help to improve lives in measurable and lasting ways by advancing the common good. Help others have the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
Because June 21st falls on a Sunday and Father's Day, we have compiled a list of activities to take action.  The best part is everything can be done from your own home. Don't feel anxious or pressured, especially since it is a Sunday and you probably want to relax if you're not celebrating Dad.  Take action with your family at home or alone at 2 am in your pajamas.  You can still make a difference!

After you have taken action on June 21, visit the Day of Action page on our website (www.mjunitedway.org/action).  Share with everyone how you made a difference.  If you don't have an internet connection, then write in or call on Monday. If you give proof of what you did (for example, a picture of the goods you plan to donate), we will give you a FREE t-shirt!
