What is the Day of Action?
The Day of Action is a day in which the community works together towards a common goal; providing assistance to those in need, partnering with community members and law enforcement and enhancing the lives of others as well as the community as a whole. Last year, thousands of people in more than 300 communities around the world participated in Day of Action! Join us to make a difference!
What is the 2017 Day of Action Project?
We are putting together Literacy Kits to help children throughout Lincoln County build the literacy and social skills needed to succeed. Learning to read by the end of third grade is the most important predictor of a child's future success. Literacy kits inspire creativity among volunteers and bring books to life to deepen a child's reading experience. Support for young readers though a book, activities and props all inside a colorful kit is a special treat for a child that will impact them now and into the future.
A Day of Action can lead to a lifetime of learning for a child. We hope you will join us!
