Day of Action 2022

This summer, United Way GBACC wants to take action by creating outreach packages for those who are experiencing homelessness, those on the edge of homelessness, and resource providers like you who offer help every day. Through our Day of Action 2022, we are creating 1,000 outreach packages that will be filled with information around community resources, hygiene items, and encouragement for those who are experiencing homelessness. We know, however, that it takes all of us to create change.

Throughout the month of June, we will be collecting hygiene items to fill the 1,000 outreach bags. We would like to ask each of you to partner with us as we take action and make an impact for those who are homelessness. You can participate by collecting hygiene items or helping to package outreach bags on June 2nd. We have made it easy to participate by putting together a list of items needed that will be sent directly to our office where packages will be created. Our drive will run throughout the entire month of June, and donations can be dropped off anytime.

If you are interested in partnering with us by hosting a drive at your workplace, please contact Kaci Pena and we will follow up with more information. If your workplace offers resources for homeless individuals or those threatened by it, please send that information to Kaci Pena and we will include it in our resource packet which will be placed in every package.

For more information on how you can partner to support those who are homeless in our community and to see our list of items to donate, visit Volunteer Connect, or take a look at the flyer below!
