TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Dozens of kids participating in Tuscaloosa's Arts-N-Autism program enjoyed a pizza party Friday at Monnish Park.

It's one of several events happening for the Day of Action.

"It means a lot to have community support. We are very privileged in Tuscaloosa to have the United Way of West Alabama behind us," Jan Sikes, executive director of Arts-N-Autism explained.

The United Way helped several groups coordinate community work with charities, non profits and others around town.

This is the second year in a row that folks with West Alabama Bank and Trust have done something for Arts-N-Autism.

Volunteers with Smart Bank power washed things outside of the Black Warrior Council's Boy Scouts of America office and cleaned windows as part of the effort.

"I'm doing this cause I can. I'm able. But it does give you a good feeling to know you're helping someone out," Zach Robbins said.

Organizers say nearly 500 people volunteered in 35 different events.
