Day of Action - June 21, 2016
This year, in addition to providing our year-round Days of Caring volunteer opportunities, UWGAT is hosting one major project, a Day of Action, on Tuesday, June 21, 2015.
During Day of Action 2016, UWGAT is holding a Wellness Drive. This drive is to collect essential toiletries and other small items to help individuals in our area. The Wellness Drive continues throughout the month of June.
Want to help?
Start a collection at your business, organization, civic group and/or church. Invite your family, friends and co-workers to donate a combination of new, unopened items. The following items are needed: (full size) shampoo; deodorant; bar soap; toothbrush and toothpaste; razors and shaving cream; sun screen; first aid supplies; bug spray; antibiotic ointment; white socks; feminine care products; diapers and baby wipes.

Days of Caring allows our community partner agencies the opportunity to have out of the ordinary projects completed that otherwise would not be done, allowing additional program dollars toward direct services for their clients. Such projects may include landscaping, painting, cleaning and more. Last year’s hours alone equated to over $100,000 saved by the non-profit agencies in our community.
Last year’s results are a true testament of living united. Help us improve our results over last year by posting a project, or by picking a project to complete!
