Week of Action

We need YOU to get involved during UWEM’s annual United Week of Action from May 14 through May 20! UWEM will offer a variety of activities that will support programs and partners across our region. This is a great way for companies and individuals to volunteer and give back by assisting non-profits with indoor and outdoor projects or participating in a food drive. UWEM’s United Week of Action needs YOU to make a difference in our community!

 

If you are an individual, a local business, non-profit, or group and would like to volunteer or host your own drive during the Week of Action, SIGN-UP TODAY!

If you are a local non-profit that has a project that you would like to offer during the Week of Action, email info@unitedwayem.org
