Friday, June 21 is the longest day on the calendar, so the Missoula County United Way is using the opportunity for their annual Day of Action.

Susan Hay-Patrick, CEO of the Missoula County United Way said the day will be full of activities to help non-profit organizations.

“Friday will be the biggest day of action we’ve ever had,” Hay-Patrick said. “We have 232 volunteers all signed up from 23 teams to complete hands-on service projects at 13 local non-profits. These projects are the kind that these types of organizations would not be able to complete.”

Hay-Patrick provided some examples of the projects to be done on Friday.

“We are creating a garden at Washington Middle School with Flagship students, we’re helping with the Mountain Home Montana annual yard sale, getting kids active with Let’s Move Missoula, doing yard work and cleaning gutters and sidewalks for the YWCA transitional housing facility, weeding for Garden City Harvest, all kinds of projects where people are getting out and getting active,” Hay-Patrick said.

Hay-Patrick said there’s still time to volunteer for the Day of Action.

“You know, if people are interested in volunteering, they should give me a call at 549-6104, or email me at Susan at Missoula United Way dot org.” Hay-Patrick said.

Hay Patrick said the activities will run all day, starting with a breakfast at Bonner Park to be hosted by Missoula Mayor Jon Engen.
