Volunteers are needed for Day of Action 2017 on Wednesday, June 21. The United Way of the Brazos Valley is in need of 85 volunteers from the community to assemble 3,000 baby bundles, which will be provided to local hospitals for new parents. Each bundle is a tote packed with a board book, handheld toy, and helpful information on family budgeting and community resources for families. The Baby Bundles will be distributed to families through the labor and delivery departments of area hospitals just after the baby is born.
This event is an opportunity for community members to come together and address issues that matter most to them. This year, United Way is fighting for access to education and early literacy for all babies born in the Brazos Valley.
There are two shifts available: 9:30am-11:30am and 2pm-4pm on June 21. The first shift will focus on filling the bags with items and about 70 volunteers are needed. The second shift needs 15 volunteers who will do the heavy lifting required to store the completed bins of baby bundles and transport them to an offsite storage facility.
Both shifts will take place at St. Joseph Catholic Church Activity Center, located at 700 E. 26th St. in Bryan.
