2012 United Way Days of Action


This year the decision was made to transition from the annual United Way of Greater Kansas City/CFC Day of Caring to United Way of Greater Kansas City Days of Action.  This new initiative will focus on our three impact areas, the building blocks for a good life. 

Instead of just one annual opportunity to participate, there will be multiple activities throughout the year.  Each impact area will be the focus of one trimester:

Education Days of Action (September - December)
Income Days of Action (January – April)
Health Days of Action (May - August)

Our Education Days of Action projects will be focused on ensuring children and youth attain their full potential by supporting services that promote:

  • Parent and caring adults have knowledge and skills to support positive development
    Children and adult literacy
    Children enter school ready to succeed
    Prevention of family violence
    Public and professional education for the prevention of abuse
    Quality out-of-school time and quality early learning opportunities
    Servicesfor at-risk youth aimed at helping them stay in school
    Youth development
