DID YOU KNOW?
Nearly two-thirds of low-income families do not have books in their homes.
YOU CAN HELP:
Help United Way improve literacy in Summit County by collecting children’s books – new and like new – for Akron Public School students in grades K-6.
HOW IT WORKS:
United Way will deliver collection bins for books to your location. Your organization will collect books through the month of February. At the Sort-a-Thon on March 1, volunteers will sort the books for distribution to school students on March 9.
