Horry County, S.C. – United Way of Horry County (UWHC) is announcing their inaugural Day of Action Dine United Event. This program will take place on Monday, June 21 in participating restaurants and eateries in Horry County. For this event, restaurant owners are joining the United Way campaign effort by donating a percentage of the day’s sales to United Way of Horry County. Every dollar donated will go to support improving the access to health, education, and financial stability.
“We are grateful to have this partnership with our local restaurant community,” says Blakely Roof, President and CEO of United Way of Horry County. “We hope this event will raise awareness of the important role United Way of Horry County plays in helping to assess our community’s needs and secure funding for health, education, financial stability, and basic needs programs.”
Day of Action is a day celebrated amongst United Ways all over the globe. Day of Action is an entire day dedicated to improving the access to health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. This day provides opportunities for individuals and groups to be a part of solutions that make a real difference in people’s lives. Dine United makes this effort simple by allowing others to give back to their community just by having a meal at one of the participating businesses. Recognizing the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the hospitality industry here in Horry County, specifically the restaurant industry, United Way of Horry County has chosen to focus this year’s Day of Action on supporting local restaurants. The financial stability of local restaurants is vital to overall financial stability of the county.
Participating businesses will be announced soon.
