Mobilize to Fight Hunger during United Way Day of Action on June 21

It’s not too late to participate in United Way Day of Action on June 21. That’s when hundreds of local volunteers will mobilize in a single day of community service focused on alleviating hunger across Central Florida.  

 To date, nearly 300 volunteers have signed up to take part in 25 projects benefitting 19 local nonprofits that serve people in need. From feeding hungry children and families to sorting food pantry items and delivering meals to seniors, many meaningful opportunities are still available, including: 

Family Promise of Greater Orlando – Healthy Snack Initiative: Volunteers are needed to donate and deliver boxes of healthy snacks to local churches that provide temporary housing for homeless families.

Osceola Council on Aging: Assist with preparing and serving nutritious meals to seniors by working in the kitchen, helping with congregate meals or delivering food to individuals’ homes.

One of the many benefits of volunteering is the great feeling you gain in seeing how your efforts help improve lives, spread awareness and inspire hope for those who need it most.

We hope to see you on June 21!
