United Way of South Central Kentucky is joining the efforts of the greater United Way Network on June 21 for the annual Day of Action! This year we are encouraging people across our 10-county region (Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne Counties) to take action and do something impactful on or around June 21!
Join us for the 2023 United Way “Day of Action” by showing how you #LoveYourNeighbor!
We’re encouraging you to do at least one thing to show love to those around you. This doesn’t have to be your next-door neighbor – we’re surrounded by neighbors and friends every day. Get creative and have fun!
Share your photos and stories on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Instagram with #LoveYourNeighbor2023 #DayOfAction2023 #LiveUnited and tag us @UWSCKY.
