Day of Action is an annual day of service sponsored by United Way of Greater Portland. More than 1,000 volunteers from local businesses and schools will spend the day enhancing our thriving community at 75+ projects with local nonprofits and schools. Projects include painting, trail clearing, gardening, cleaning, organizing, reading with children, and more. Day of Action projects are held at agencies, schools, and municipal sites throughout the Greater Portland area. Volunteers head out to their assigned projects by 9:00 a.m. for a day of fun and hard work.
The 2019 Day of Action will occur on Thursday, May 21, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
You’ll have an opportunity to learn about community needs and about the work of a specific agency or school.
