According to the National Center for Education Statistics, a divison of the U.S. Department of Education, children who are read to at home enjoy a substantial advantage over children who are not. United Way of Southwest Louisiana is working to put more books in the hands of more children. Join our efforts!
United Way of Southwest Louisiana knows that by making reading a fun, interactive activity we can encourage more children to open their books. As a result of more time spent reading, children across Southwest Louisiana are prepared for early and long-term school success. Literacy kits are designed to do just that!
Literacy Kits inspire a love for reading in the children who receive them and creativity in the dedicated volunteers who assemble them. Each kit includes one book and volunteer designed props, games, or other activities to make the reading interactive. In partnership with our local school systems, Literacy Kits will be distributed to children across our region.
We invite you to our Day of Caring on March 25th, 2017! This event will take place at our office, 815 Ryan Street in Lake Charles, from 9:00 am to noon.
Day of Caring is an opportunity for you to take part in a meaningful and unique volunteer experience! Get together with co-workers or make it a family outing. Either way, we need YOU!
