Nearly 600 volunteers are taking part in over 100 projects for the United Way of Western Connecticut's annual Day of Action. 25 companies are participating in the event benefitting more than 30 non-profit agencies.
The projects are taking care of maintenance projects that would otherwise cost the charities thousands of dollars to do. Other companies are reading to children leading financial literacy courses and supplying groups with materials to support Day of Action projects.
Cartus, Praxair and Boehringer Ingelhem are among the companies helping out. Ability Beyond Disability, the Women's Center and Danbury's Emergency Shelter are among those benefitting.
