    Event Description:

    SAVE THE DATE: Join us for the 4th Annual United Way Children’s Book Drive April 9-13!

     Great news! The United Way Children’s Book Drive collection will be April 9-13, 2018This is such a great event, and we’d love for you to get involved again! As you know, this initiative is focused on reducing summer learning loss for Idaho’s low-income children. The week-long event is designed to inspire and unite Idahoans in the spirit of helping low-income children achieve reading competencies that will lead to lifelong success.
    Our goal is to energize our great community by capturing the philanthropic spirit within each one of us through partnership, volunteerism, sponsorship and lots and lots of book donations.  Last year we collected nearly 100,000 —thanks to folks like you. We have our work cut out for us, but we know that, with partners like you, we can make it happen!  
    Like last year, there are numerous ways you can support our book drive efforts, such as:
    • Be a Book Drive Sponsor (some great benefits for you!)
    • Host a gently used book drive within your site again.
    • Serve as a community drop-off location.
    • Bring your team of volunteers to help us collect, sort, and clean books on April 17-19 – we need lots and lots of volunteers!
    Please consider these opportunities and let me know the way(s) you might like to support this important children’s literacy event! We need your help!
