READ UNITED 2016: MAY 7-11th

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

This year during May 7th– 11th, United Way of the Big Bend (UWBB) will engage 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 their home library. Through READ UNITED, UWBB has distributed over 35,000 free books over the past eight years.  We look forward to having you join us!
