United Way of Central Maryland Hosts Fifth Annual Day of Action on October 4

Local organizations and individuals encouraged to participate in more than 40 volunteer opportunities throughout central Maryland

Baltimore, MD (September 24, 2018) – United Way of Central Maryland will host more than 40 volunteer opportunities for its fifth annual Day of Action on Thursday, October 4. And there is still time for organizations and individuals to volunteer their time to help communities throughout central Maryland. We all love our neighborhoods. We love the hustle and bustle of the people walking their dogs, playing with their children and beautifying their spaces. We love the sense of community and respect. Whether you live in “the burbs” or in the city, neighborhoods provide a sense of belonging and comfort. But not all neighborhoods are without people who need a hot meal, or shelters and schools that need a little extra tender loving care.

“Day of Action provides the opportunity for people to not just talk about change, but to engage in activities that are making a real difference and improving people’s lives,” said Franklyn Baker, President and CEO, United Way of Central Maryland. “When we work together, we can make some big things happen for our neighborhoods and the people that reside in them. And that is never more apparent than on Day of Action. We hope individuals and company teams will join us in putting a little love back into the communities that need it most.”

On Thursday, October 4, volunteer teams from central Maryland businesses, government and other organizations will join together to help the region’s underserved populations through the nonprofit’s annual “Day of Action” events. “Day of Action” is an annual community service effort hosted by the local nonprofit focused on helping central Maryland residents with housing, health, education and employment.

With over 40 available opportunities to give back, this year’s Day of Action will be United Way’s and most impactful day yet.
