Trident United Way’s Day of Action brings corporate volunteers together to help senior citizens

Trident United Way brought together more than 50 volunteers today as they helped senior citizens during the annual Day of Action.

Hosted by United Way Worldwide, Day of Action is a global day of service where United Ways from across the globe take part in community service projects.

Volunteers took part in a total of nine projects, ranging from yard work, assembling care kits, letter writing, sidewalk chalk art and poster making. The event is designed to spread cheer and bring volunteers into the community to make a positive difference in people’s lives.

Soundbite: Jeff Straight/Santee Cooper volunteer “Anytime you can give back to the community is a great time whether its mowing the grass or volunteering in a soup kitchen, but the folks here at Santee Cooper always try to give back, especially now in this COVID era.”
