Get ready to sort, label, and pack. United Way of Rhode Island’s Annual Day of Action is Saturday, June 2. Volunteers will sort, label, and pack books — preparing them for distribution to Rhode Island youth in summer learning programs across the state. Over the past 6 years, we have collected and sorted 164,769 books with the help of our amazing volunteers and our partner, Books Are Wings.
