Trident United Way’s Day of Action helps people across the Tri-County

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – Today, Trident United volunteers worked to show their love and appreciation for seniors across the Tri-County by taking part in multiple volunteer projects during the annual Day of Action.

From grilling up lunch to sprucing up gardens and more, the annual event consists of multiple projects across the Tri-County with volunteers Living UNITED, showing exactly what brings us together and makes us stronger.

Day of Action included volunteers working on herb gardens in North Charleston, landscaping in Berkeley County, while others helped prepare meals for seniors at Azalea Church of Christ and Ansonborough House.

"Day of Action is such a great way for volunteers and companies across the Tri-County to connect with the community and make a positive difference in people's lives," said Amanda Sito, Trident United Way Director of Strategic Volunteer Engagement. "Seeing the smiles on the faces of volunteers and those being helped is what this day is all about. We hope to grow this special event even more when our region continues to move forward past the pandemic."

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.
