United Way’s Day of Action a success

United Way of Nevada County's fifth annual Day of Action was a huge success.

On May 10, United Way of Nevada County hosted its fifth annual Day of Action. The many volunteers along with beautiful weather helped make the event a success. Weeds were pulled, gardens were planted, food was bagged, and nonprofits throughout the county benefited, including The Food Bank of Nevada County, CORR, DVSAC, Women of Worth, Gold Country Community Services and Child Advocates. Companies, including Telestream, Tri-Continent, Miranda, General Dynamics, UPS, Applied Science and JC Penney, volunteered their time to help the community during this great day of action.

Along with the many adults who participated, high school students from Nevada Union High School, Ananda and Bitney Springs College Prep also helped make the day a success. Day of Action takes place all over the United States through the efforts of local United Ways. Nevada County's Day of Action had more than 150 volunteers come out to participate. Volunteerism is an essential ingredient to helping local communities grow.
