Springfield, Ill. (WRSP) -- Friday, September 14th is the United Way Day of Action.
Several organizations volunteered around Springfield.
We caught up with Horace Mann at the central Illinois foodbank, helping sort food.
They say an organization as big as them loves to get involved in the community.
Paul Wapple - Horace Mann, "Everyone needs help, everyone some to lend them a hand. Anything we can do to make a difference in the community makes us feel really good."
Other locations for the day of action were habitat for humanity of Sangamon county and Henson Robinson zoo.
