Stamp Out Hunger was held on Saturday May 9, 2015 at First Baptist Church of Burlington 

And it was a big Success!  Over 90,000 pounds of foods was collected and distributed to local food pantries in partnership with our local letter carriers.

Make A Difference Day:   Spring 2015  

Make A Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others -- a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. 

United Way of Alamance County Celebrated Volunteerism during National Volunteer Week, April 12-18 2015.

We recently solicited projects from local non-profits and schools.  We then led a challenge for residents, businesses, churches and organizations to, "Make a Difference" during National Volunteer Week.  Connections were made with local non-profits and schools by signing up for one-time projects (that hopefully lead to long-term partnerships!)  At the end of the week, more than 200 hours were served by more than 80 people through 11 different projects!  

This initiative was intended to inspire our community to pursue creative ways to engage with others and solve problems.  We believe that we have the ability to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals by working together.  

United Way of Alamance County strives to be at the center of social change - discovering and demonstrating the collective power we have when we Live United.

 

We encouraged volunteers to share their experience volunteering by using the hashtag #AlamanceMDDay on social media.  Check-out the Slidely video of volunteers in action HERE.
