Several residents giving back to the community for United Way’s Day of Action.
United Way River District teamed up with Rockford Police — all in an effort to help build the health and safety of the surrounding communities.
Volunteers showed up for the block party yesterday that was hosted by United Way.
Matt Simpson — with United Way — says the block party is meant to provide a platform for neighbors to not only connect, but also to provide people useful information on early childhood, health and wellness, as well as job information.
The goal for United Way is to work on one neighborhood at a time that needs more than just beautification in order to improve the overall quality of life in the surrounding communities.
