On June 23, the United Way of Tarrant County united the communities of Tarrant County by offering several local volunteer opportunities during its annual United Way Day of Action. Volunteers had the option of working with Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County, at Tails and Trails Dog Park in Arlington, or Mayfair Park in Hurst.
At the MOW facility (shown here), volunteers assembled emergency and comfort kits for MOW clients. United Way Corporate Relations Manager Kintisha Williams joined in on the action. “There’s no better feeling than giving back to the elders in our community,” she said.
But Kintisha wasn’t the only one getting involved. Dr. Faye Beaulieu, Regional Director of United Way-Northeast, wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty at Hurst’s community beautification project at Mayfair Park. “This crew makes working in the Texas sun a breeze,” she said.
The United Way of Tarrant County also turned its main office board room into a place where volunteers could write special cards for MOW veteran clients. At DFW Airport (shown here), employees signed hundreds of the cards.
All in all, this year’s annual United Way Day of Action was a success in turning everyday citizens into community superheroes. Thanks volunteers!
