READ UNITED 2016: MAY 2-6th

8 counties, 200 volunteers, 300 classrooms, and 4,500 books in just 5 days!

This year during the first week of May, United Way of the Big Bend (UWBB) will recruit READ UNITED volunteers to read classic tales like The Cat in the Hat and Curious George in every first grade public school classroom in the eight-county Big Bend region. To encourage a love of reading, READ UNITED provides every first grade student with a brand new, FREE book to build his or home library. Through READ UNITED, UWBB has distributed over 30,000 free books over the past six years.

For more information about READ UNITED or to become a READ UNITED VOLUNTEER, please contact Jennifer Johnson at 850-488-8168 or jennifer@uwbb.org.
