Days of Action

United Way's Annual Volunteer Days

In 2021 and 2022, United Way MV and community volunteers installed 'Born Learning Trails' in four more local parks throughout the Mohawk Valley.

Born Learning Trails are a series of interactive signs that offer fun, active learning activities for young children and their families. It helps parents, caregivers and communities create quality engagement opportunities when out on a stroll or visiting a local playground. The trails are the perfect way to help further our mission and focus on early childhood education!

Check out this year's photo gallery here.
