Ellis County, TX (JULY 2023) – The United Way of West Ellis County (UWWEC) hosted its annual Day of Action on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 at Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS). On this day, United Way’s across the world mobilize numerous volunteers - community members, local nonprofit agencies, employees of corporate partners - for one powerful day of volunteerism. It is part of United Way’s work to build stronger communities where everyone can thrive.
For this year’s Day of Action, UWWEC was joined with volunteers from Atmos Energy, Creekside Church, Faith Family Academy, Gerdau, Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, Superior Construction Services, and 3 Stones Wood Works. Over forty volunteers, plus staff from PCHAS and UWWEC, did not hesitate to get to work moving offices, cutting down large trees and hauling brush, deep cleaning houses and painting bedrooms. For more than three hours these volunteers did not stop and made sure that they got the most work done for PCHAS during the time that they were on the property.
