With 65 socially distant and remote volunteer opportunities supporting 29 community agencies across the Capital Region, there is a way for everyone to get involved. Local companies, families and individuals can get involved on 518 Day by signing up for a service project or additional opportunities include:
- “Stuff the CDTA Bus” Health & Hygiene Drive with Women United; donations will be collected to fill a CDTA bus with household items and toiletries to be donated to the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants
- Virtual 5k Walk/Run sponsored by Tri City Rentals to benefit UWGCR
- Random Acts of Kindness BINGO Card
- Community Celebration in partnership with the Tri-City ValleyCats at Joe Bruno Stadium
“We started 518 Day three years ago with a small beautification project in the City of Albany and it’s really expanded and grown into a tremendous regional day of community service and celebration of the Capital Region. We’re thrilled to have a record number of ways to get involved this year,” said Peter Gannon, President & CEO at United Way of the Greater Capital Region.
