On June 23rd, United Way of Brazoria County participated in Days of Action alongside some of our corporate partners. Days of Action is a community-wide volunteer opportunity allowing community partners, companies, and volunteers to give back. This is an annual event that mobilizes the caring power of volunteers to make a meaningful impact in more than 400 communities around the world.
This year we decided to put all our combined efforts into one location, The Family Crisis Shelter in Oyster Creek. We had 67 volunteers come out to Family Crisis Shelter in hopes that we could update their facility for them to better serve their families. Our 67 volunteers applied fresh coats of paint to houses, tended to flower beds, and updated the overall appearance of the facility. In total, our partners donated more than $8,000 to the shelter with a grand total of 336 service hours.
Our sponsors for this event include BASF, First State Bank, Zachry Group, and the Catholic Daughters. Our volunteers consisted of members from the City of Freeport, First State Bank, Norrell Construction Inc., JVIC, Zachry Group, Chevron Phillips Chemical, The Dow Chemical Company, and the Catholic Daughters. Days of Action would not be possible if it were not for our corporate partners who are committed to bettering our community through their service.
