Collect new and like-new books for children in grades K-6.

A book can be a child’s first window into the world beyond her neighborhood. It can be a prized possession, a source of comfort, knowledge and amusement – and it can be her first step toward lasting success.

Children from households rich in books are 36% more likely to graduate from high school than children without a home library. Help United Way achieve its Bold Goal 1 and Bold Goal 2 by collecting books for Akron Public School Students.

COLLECT BOOKS: February 5 – March 7 
SORT-A-THON: March 7 
DISTRIBUTION DAY: March 21
