United Way’s 2017 Days of Action Impacts Local Community
Presented by Nissan  

This year’s Days of Action impacted the local community with 250 volunteers putting in more than 1,000 hours of service to complete 20 projects over the span of three days throughout Rutherford and Cannon counties.

Days of Action is an opportunity for individuals or teams in the community to complete projects that benefit non-profit organizations. Volunteers participate in activities such as refurbishing workspaces and common areas, creating community gardens, food sorting and completing house work to help non-profits. United Way focused on projects impacting the areas of education, health and financial stability.

Through a partnership between Middle Tennessee State University’s The Big Event and United Way, MTSU supplied 125 student volunteers to assist during this year’s Days of Action.

Participating companies and organizations included: Participating companies include Nissan, Atmos Energy, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital, Bridgestone, General Mills, Rich’s Products, Ingram, Residence Inn, Middle Tennessee Electric, Amazon, Asurion, Chromalox, and Miller Loughry and Beach.

United Way’s Days of Action sponsors include Nissan, Target, Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital, Atmos Energy and Regions Bank.
