United Way of Central Maryland Hosts ‘Way Day’ of Service


Volunteers Support the Community School Program at Joppatowne High School

United Way of Central Maryland recently hosted the inaugural “Way Day” of service. The day-long event highlighted all areas of United Way’s impact work across central Maryland through nearly 20 volunteer projects throughout the region. In Harford County, volunteers from United Way, Care First, M&T Bank, Under Armour and Harford County Chamber of Commerce made 50 no sew blankets to benefit the Community Schools Program at Joppatowne High School.

“Way Day” service projects benefited United Way of Central Maryland programs including On Track 4 Success, a data-driven, educational intervention program that helps underserved students with the resources they need to get and stay on track for school success; United Way Neighborhood Zones, a data-informed, community-driven equity initiative that enhances the life and self-sustainability of local communities; as well as the 211 Maryland United Way Helpline, Work Ways, and health and housing programs.
