It’s time to jump into action! Greater Twin Cities United Way is bringing together community changemakers for our annual Action Day initiative to provide backpacks full of school supplies for 50,000 local students!

Each year, more than 100,000 greater Twin Cities students return to school without essential school supplies to succeed in the classroom. Through Action Day, you can help address educational disparities that have been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure students go back to school with the essential supplies ready to learn. Check out all the ways you can get involved:

Volunteer at Action Day on Thursday, August 12!

Registration has reached capacity! We invite you to join our waitlist.

Please note: Unlike years past, we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins the day of the event due to the limited capacity of which we can offer.

Donate to the Action Day Backpack Fund

Make an individual, one-time donation or start a team fundraiser. For every donation of $10 you will equip one student with a backpack full of school supplies and receive one (1) entry in our sweepstakes! And every donation of $50 or more receives a FREE Action Day T-shirt!
