Days of Action 2015: Orange, Durham, Wake, & Johnston

DoA.logo_
United Way of the Greater Triangle invites you to participate in this year’s Days of Action, June 15-19, 2015. Day of Action is a point in time when we stand together as members of this Triangle community and mobilize the caring power of community to build long-term, sustainable change. We recognize that to make real change in our community, we must stand together every day.  Beginning Monday, June 15, join us for lunch at food truck rodeos throughout the Triangle to learn about our collaborative work, share your opinions, feedback, and ideas for improving our communities. Together, we can make a greater impact on the people we serve in Orange, Durham, Wake and Johnston counties.

On Friday, June 19, 2015, join us to help provide 1,000 weekend meals children in our community.  One in five children is food insecure in the Triangle every day.  This problem is compounded in the summer months when children don’t have access to the free and reduced lunch programs available during the school year.  In just two hours, volunteers will pack bags with enough food for meals for an entire weekend to benefit children at four Durham elementary schools.  Meal bag contents meet the guidelines of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s Backpack Buddies program which provides weekend meals to children throughout the school year.  With your help, we can provide weekend meals to students this summer.  Space is limited; register here today.
