Two volunteers participate in United Way of 1000 Lakes' Day of Action in 2023.

United Way of Northeastern Minnesota has a Day of Action in Keewatin on June 14 and United Way of 1000 Lakes will be in Marble on June 21 for its Day of Action. Volunteers and community projects are needed for both events.

There are people who need help in our region and people who want to help. That’s what the United Way’s Day of Action is all about.

Erin Shay, executive director of United Way of Northeastern Minnesota describes it as “an opportunity for people in the community to come together and partner ... and just help to better our region and support our local community members.”

This year, the United Way is partnering with Community and Economic Development Associates for two Days of Action in Itasca County: Tuesday, June 14 in the community of Keewatin and Tuesday, June 21 in the community of Marble (which includes a portion of Greenway Township).
