Volunteer YPN - May 518 Day Community Celebration: United Way of the Greater Capital Region

Thursday, May 18, 2023 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)


Let’s Participate in United Way’s 518 Day: The Largest Community Celebration!

United Way’s 518 Day provides opportunities for individuals, families, and groups to be a part of solutions to building a more resilient Capital Region through volunteerism and community impact. This year YPN will participate in 518 Day with The Regional Food Bank of NENY and we need your help!

Volunteers are needed at the Patroon Land Farm to plant vegetable seedlings in the ground to benefit the communities served by the Regional Food Bank. The Farm, managed by the Regional Food Bank, is community and volunteer driven. Volunteers – individuals, families, schools, religious groups, organizations, and businesses – supply 50% of the workforce at the Farm.

Dress to be comfortable and in the dirt throughout the morning.

Greenhouse and barn activities will replace outdoor activities in the event of inclement weather.

About United Way of the Capital Region. 

Established in 1921 as the Harrisburg Welfare Federation (now the United Way of the Capital Region). United Way is the catalyst in building community change by bringing hearts, minds, and resources together. Since 1921, our neighbors and friends living in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry counties have relied on the services and support of United Way of the Capital Region. United Way has been changing lives and addressing our community’s most pressing needs from the beginning. While our methods have evolved, one thing remains constant: our commitment to helping those who need it most.

About the Regional Food bank of NENY

The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 50 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies. The Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the national network of food banks.
