#WeAreWestTN

With the arrival of spring, venturing outside to enjoy nature with friends will be hard to resist. But we can practice social distancing without letting it divide us as a community! During the month of April, United Way of West Tennessee will encourage families and neighborhoods across our region to participate in four community-wide events from the comfort of your own yard and sidewalk. Keep an eye out for more event information and our custom Facebook profile frame! Join us as we show our support of West Tennessee. 

 

Week One: Chalk Your Walk

During this all-day event, we want to see communities come together using chalk. Be creative! Leave an encouraging note or picture on your driveway or sidewalk for the whole neighborhood to see. Then snap a photo and tag us (@LiveUnitedTN) so you can be featured on our Facebook and Instagram stories. You can also use our #WeAreWestTN Facebook profile frame to show your support of West Tennessee!


Week Two: Porch Party/Mailbox Mayhem

Time to get festive! Have any balloons, garland, or paper poms poms? Pull those decorations out of your closet and get creative with your family by adorning your porch and/or mailbox with festive decor. Then, hold a mini party to celebrate your time together as a family. Is it someone’s birthday or anniversary? Celebrate them in their honor! Draw pictures or a sign to hang up or cover your porch railing with flowers from your backyard -- the possibilities are endless. Don’t forget to snap a photo and tag us (@LiveUnitedTN) so you can be featured on our Facebook and Instagram stories. You can also use our #WeAreWestTN Facebook profile frame to show your support of West Tennessee!


Week Three: Driveway Diner

Though social distancing has prevented us from eating meals together with friends, we can still gather around the table with our family and community from a distance, of course! Spend the evening dining in the family’s driveway so you can wave to your neighbors and still feel like part of a community. Encourage them to take part, too! Don’t have a fold-up table or chairs? Have a picnic instead! Remember to snap a photo of your family together and tag us (@LiveUnitedTN) so you can be featured on our Facebook and Instagram stories. You can also use our #WeAreWestTN Facebook profile frame to show your support of West Tennessee!
