Day of Action

Day of Action 2017 is Thursday, October 5 in Stamford!

Join with hundreds of local volunteers for this annual day of volunteerism to complete a variety of service projects throughout the city of Stamford. Many of this year’s projects will focus on supporting agencies that help ALICE® households (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) who struggle and live paycheck-to-paycheck.

Support Early Grade Literacy with Wannaread Academy

Help us close the gap by creating Wannaread Academy literacy kits for area third graders during our annual Day of Action. Wannaread Academy literacy kits will deepen children’s reading experience and help them build their libraries at home. A literacy kit is comprised of books and a collection of related objects, games and other activities designed to make reading interactive and enjoyable for young children. Wannaread Academy kits will be assembled during Day of Action on Thursday, October 5.

Our book collection effort takes place prior to Day of Action. We are seeking commitments from our corporate partners with a goal to collect 600 books. This will provide each child per school with 2 books. The Wannaread Academy Literacy kits will benefit third graders from three Stamford Public Schools. All books must be brand new. No used books can be accepted. More information about the preferred books will be posted soon.
