Support 2-1-1

June 21st is United Way's National Day of Action. This year, we're asking you to get involved in a valuable service called 2-1-1.

For the millions of Americans needing help every day - from locating financial assistance, to finding quality health care and insurance for kids -
2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember phone number answered by professionals who will connect those in need to essential community resources.

Today, 2-1-1 covers 81% of the USA and 30% of Canada, helping more than 16 million people in 2009. People in our community need help right now, and you can get involved simply by spreading the word about 2-1-1 or by volunteering. Find your 2-1-1
here and volunteer to help answer the call!

In recognition of 2-1-1's importance both year-round and in times of disaster, the Calling for 2-1-1 Act (S.211/H.R.211) is before Congress. The bill currently has 234 co-sponsors in the House and 59 in the Senate and is at a crucial stage. You can help by contacting your Members of Congress and encouraging them to pass the bill. Click
