On October 27, 2016 we joined the national Read for the Record effort - the largest one-day shared reading experience. Read for the Record is an initiative of Jumpstart. United Way Volunteer Readers gathered at United Way in the morning for a brief orientation and practice. Then they dispersed throughout New London County to read to nearly 2,000 students at 19 schools in 10 school systems. Many thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers and to the schools for participating. Read more about our efforts to support education and literacy by clicking here.
