Day of Action

United Way of Rhode Island’s Day of Action will bring volunteers together to help label, sort, and pack thousands of new and gently-used children’s books donated through the annual Children’s Book Drive. All of the donated books will then be distributed to children across Rhode Island at Hasbro Summer Learning Initiative programs and afterschool programs in the fall. Check back soon for more details.
