840 Acts of Kindness
This year, nearly 840 volunteers from local businesses and organizations proved that they care about our community by giving their time at local nonprofit organizations to tackle meaningful volunteer projects.
Volunteers made a difference at more than 115 project sites in Northern Fairfield, Southern Litchfield, and Stamford on our larger Day of Action in June, and continued with smaller group projects throughout the year!
The Day of Caring was established in 1994 by the United Way of Western Connecticut to promote the spirit and value of volunteerism, increase the awareness of local human service agencies, and demonstrate what people working together for the community's good can accomplish.
Now known as "Day of Action" to reflect the fact that companies and individuals want to be truly involved and more fully understand the missions and services of our local social service agencies, it grows every year to include more of our community. And it's not limited to one day anymore. Days of Action can take place any time during the year with help from United Way staff.
