More than 50 United Way volunteer readers visited 16 16 schools to read to students following the 2014 Campaign Kickoff event. This is the third community-wide reading event United Way has organized since September 2013.
Volunteers read Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney, a story about a woman seeking a way to make the world a more beautiful place. Volunteers engaged the students in discussion about how they could make the world a little more beautiful, and they left activities for the children relating to the book's theme as well as donating the book itself to the school. Thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers, teachers, and students!
