One Day + Hundreds of Volunteers =
Immeasurable Good for Our Community


Day of Action is a day when our nonprofit partners team up with corporate volunteers to help accomplish projects, big and small. Join us as we harness the volunteer spirit of Central Iowa. 

As life begins to transition back, we will have virtual and in-person opportunities available to meet community needs. Our top goal is to keep our volunteers and nonprofit partners healthy and safe. 

This one-day event organized by United Way of Central Iowa promotes employee engagement, raises awareness about community issues, and benefits central Iowans who need our help.

With projects for groups of different sizes, interests, and skill sets, volunteers can select a project and a United Way partner that complements your team. Employees come home knowing they made a difference in the lives of their neighbors in need.
