Raise your Hands and say YES, I will Volunteer A DAY

jUNE 18, 2020


Project #1  Face Masks

Make FACE MASKS and bring to the United Way of Wayne County Office (2803 Cashwell Dr. Suite B) on June 18 from 8 AM TO 4 PM.


We are currently collecting for Partnership for Children, Wayne UNC Healthcare, and the Community Soup Kitchen. Other organizations will be added as requested. Please drop your donations off June 18th between 8 AM-4 PM at 2803 Cashwell Drive Suite B.


Project #2  Personal Hygiene Kits

Plastic storage boxes, shoe boxes, and extra-large ziplock bags make great containers for building your personal hygiene kit.  Items that you can include in your kit are:

Bar of Soap, washcloth, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, shaving cream, razor, anti-bacterial wipes, bandaids, flashlights, personal feminine products, lip balm, lotions, hand sanitizer, etc..  When you finish the kits drop them off on June 18 between 8 AM and 4 PM at the United Way of Wayne County Office 2803 Cashwell Dr. Suite B.

Project #3  Senior Buddy

Make a commitment to become a pen pal and write to a senior citizen every week, and/or give them a phone call.  Participating in this project means you pledge to connect with your senior buddy on a weekly basis, either by mail, email, or phone calls. Seniors may experience loneliness and that loneliness can be intensified by the pandemic. Communication with our seniors on a regular basis can combat loneliness and help seniors feel valued. Contact United Way of Wayne County for a program application starting in June.

Project #4  FOOD DRIVE

Our Community Food Pantries need our help.  Since COVID-19 hit our community, the demand for help with food has more than doubled.  The UW Disaster Relief Fund has helped provide 5,772+ meals over the usual meals requested.   

We need our help to restock the pantries. We will be taking donations for Food on June 18 from 8 AM to 4 PM at Wayne County Public Library on Ash Street.  

Download a Grocery list of items that are needed.  We have made a list on Amazone Smile if you would like to purchase online.
