Our volunteers made it happen on Trident United Way’s Day of Action 2020! This was TUW’s second year participating in the United Way Worldwide Day of Action event. The activities of the day were all about helping home bound older adults (65+) with low-income and limited mobility stay independent in their homes and connected to their communities. THANK YOU to the 65 volunteers who tended to some neglected yards, assembled care kits, wrote notes and letters, drew sidewalk chalk art and made posters. In total, our volunteers dedicated 90 hours completing 9 projects that impacted 590 seniors!!

Trident United Way's participation is part of a larger initiative from United Way Worldwide. View the full 2020 United Way Worldwide Day of Action Report here.
