The United Way of Broome County is planning this year’s traditional “Day of Action” which will incorporate COVID-19 safety standards, while creating socially distant volunteer opportunities.
Each year, the United Way of Broome County encourages our community to get involved as a volunteer, and help others in need.
In a News release United Way of Broome County Executive Director LoriAnne Welch said “Our community’s need for volunteers is constant and continues to evolve as we navigate the health, education and economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic,”
The day of Action is normally held on June 21st and involves mobilizing people around solutions, in an effort to build stronger communities. This year the event will be held Friday June 18th and Saturday June 19th.
