The United Way kicks off its National Week of Action.

Thousands of volunteers across the country, including more than 130 here in the Greater Mankato Area, showcased the work being done by The United Way.

Brooke Forstner of Eide Bailly says, "It's the United Way Day of Action. It's actually a weeklong event. We've participated for several years. Last year we were at CADA House. This year we're at the Salvation Army painting."

The Week of Action will last until June 19.
