Day of Action

United Way's Annual Volunteer Day

Tentative 2021 Day of Action: June 22

At this year's Day of Action, we will be installing United Way Born Learning Trails in 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. Focused on early childhood education, this project aligns perfectly with our Ready for Kindergarten (R4K) mission.

We're so excited to have locations in Sylvan Beach, Utica, and Rome this year! 

Sponsoring a Born Learning Trail is the perfect way to show the community that your company cares.
