With a mission to give back and promote volunteering in our community
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Thursday, April 8, KMTV and several area organizations are partnering together for a Day of Action, during which you can help support area nonprofits.
People making donations can do so to organizations of their choice by visiting www.uwmdayofaction.org or by texting DAYOFACTION to 71777.
United Way of the Midlands (UMW) said 100% of donations made will be given to participating nonprofits.
In addition to helping fun area nonprofits, the Day of Action helps promote volunteering in the area.
“COVID-19 has impacted all of us: our loved ones, our neighbors, our co-workers and more – and we still have a long road ahead of us. But through these dark times, we’ve learned that our greatest strength is our spirit of community,” said Matt Wallen, Senior Vice President of Community Impact and Analytics. “When we’re faced with challenges, we rise up to meet them, together. That’s why we’re inviting people to reach out a helping hand to our neighbors, our community and United Way partners on the frontlines of COVID-19 by donating on Day of Action and volunteering in April.”
Volunteers from participating agencies will be taking part in 50 volunteer projects throughout the month of April. You can sign up to donate your time by visiting www.uwmdayofactionorg.
