It's that time of year! The United Way Book Drive is underway - collecting new and gently used books for children in low-income families. Most of us have books our children have grown out of or books that don't get read. Or perhaps you just have so many that you want to share the joy of reading.
Please join us in supporting this great cause and drop the books you no longer need at our 5373 Alworth office by April 11th, and receive a SURPRISE gift! What is the gift? You won't know until you stop by, but we promise it's worth the trip!
There are so many benefits to reading - reading improves reading ability, strengthens brain connections, encourages and helps develop imagination, improves vocabulary, teaches values, exposes children to things they wouldn't otherwise experience, increases empathy, encourages life-long reading, improves reading comprehension, children who are read to build listening skills, and much more.
Please join us in making this a successful event. Thank you!
