Volunteers of all ages are needed to work on 37 service projects among 23 schools and learning centers to help get them ready for the new school year. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Projects will include painting walls, cleaning playgrounds, mulching, and more. Volunteers are asked to help pack a school bus with food donations for MANNA’s Packs for Kids and school supply items for Henderson County Public Schools.

“Day of Action was a huge success last year,” said Denise Cumbee Long, executive director of United Way of Henderson County. “We are thrilled to partner once again with Pardee and Henderson County Schools as we help our schools spruce up for the new academic year. Education is one of United Way’s key focus areas, and we think the Day of Action is a great way to show support for our teachers and the children who attend our schools.”
