National Day of Action 2021

National Day of Action 2021 

Brought to you by the Volunteer Center and Emerging Philanthropists

United Way Day of Action is an invitation for people and organizations around the world to LIVE UNITED and take action to address a variety of challenges. 2021 National Day of Virtual Action is on and around Friday, June 18. Brought to you by United Way of Washtenaw County’s Volunteer Center and the Emerging Philanthropists, Day of Action is a day that we ask you to help us put our mission into action by improving the building blocks for a good quality of life. 
Join us for our largest day of service by volunteering remotely or at nonprofits throughout Washtenaw County. 

There are four ways YOU can participate:

1. Hands-on Volunteering: There are many hands-on needs to be met throughout our community. These are projects that can still be carried out in-person, with proper safety precautions observed. Most hands- on volunteering will take place outdoors! 
2. Virtual Skill-Based Volunteering: These are projects that can be completed anywhere, aimed at engaging volunteers with specific skills (such as finance, marketing, communications, website design, etc.). These projects may take place over one day or several weeks. We have partnered with to provide these skill specific volunteer opportunities. Click here to find a local skills-based project with Catchafire.
3. Remote Volunteering: These are projects that can be completed off-site, by volunteers mostly from their homes. Examples: Donation Drive for vital supplies, mask making or remote blood drive. We don’t have to be in-person to engage with the community and help our nonprofits in need! Organize a remote activity with your team, family, or on your own (with all appropriate safety precautions observed!) 
4. Advocacy: United Way of Washtenaw County has been focused on equity and racial justice for many years but we need your help to make a change. Click the links for different ways to advocate:  Advocate By LearningAdvocate By Giving, and Advocate By Doing!
