Third Annual Day Of Action
ALACHUA COUNTY - They're calling it a day of action. A number of public Schools got a touch up today.
While kids were out of class in alachua county for teacher planning day. Volunteers were raking, pulling weeds and caulking windows at duval elementary, one of eight schools being beautified by United Way. The non profit asked partners like the alachua county fire rescue, nationwide, and publix among others to lend a hand.
Chris Wells with United Way said, “It’s one thing for them to give us money that we put into our community investment funds, that goes through our grant funding process for our partner agencies. But it’s another thing entirely to get them committed and dedicated to the community in action. To get their hands dirty and to participate.”
This is the third year “a day of action” happens in North Central Florida.
