United Way’s commitment to early learning
Children who enter kindergarten ready to learn are more likely to attain their third grade reading level and graduate from high school. That’s why United Way is investing in programs that help children enter kindergarten ready to learn.
Fill and distribute book bags with new books and supplies for over 1,000 children who will be entering kindergarten in fall 2014.
