CINCINNATI – On Saturday, June 21, United Way of Greater Cincinnati will join volunteers across the globe in United Way Day of Action – the longest day of the year and the day we stand up in our community to pledge to change the course of our future. It demonstrates that giving doesn't always mean digging deep into the bank account. People can contribute by donating their time and talents.

United Way is working with organizations throughout the region to ensure that, by 2020, at least 85 percent of youth will graduate from high school and have set a goal of recruiting 1,000 new volunteer readers, tutors and mentors by Day of Action.

 A “street team” will be recruiting those willing to pledge to become volunteer readers, tutors and mentors 11 AM – 1 PM at Washington Park. You can also join us by making the pledge today at
