Day of Action 2015 Brings 150 Volunteers Out To Alachua County Schools, Agency Partners 
This year's Day of Action was a success! United Way of North Central Florida brought more than 150 volunteers from all over Alachua County together on Friday to beautify local schools. Our volunteers came from Alachua County Fire Rescue, Alachua County Library District, the County Manager's Office, Enterprise, Florida Institute for Workforce Innovation (FIWI), Infinite Energy, Nationwide, Nordstrom, more than 15 Publix stores, RTI and TD Bank. They were assisted by members of the Alachua County Public Schools Facilities Office and custodians from the schools, who came on their day off!

The volunteers were divided among eight schools: Alachua Elementary, A.L. Mebane Middle, Glen Springs Elementary, Howard W. Bishop Middle, Idylwild Elementary, Newberry Elementary, W.W. Irby Elementary and Sidney Lanier Center. Volunteers also went to Northwest Boys & Girls Club and to Girl's Place. Some of the projects included repainting aged playground equipment, weeding, mulching, planting bushes, making flowerbeds and clearing the campuses of overgrowth.

The event began with a standing room-only kickoff at Sidney Lanier Center with breakfast and words of encouragement from Alachua County Public Schools Vice Superintendent Paul White.

United Way of North Central Florida appreciates all the support from our volunteers and partners. The event showed how much you all are invested in our communities. A special thank you to our sponsors Florida Food Service, Pepsi and Alachua County Public Schools.
