Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” Celebrate Dr. King’s legacy by committing to volunteer with United Way.
In honor of Dr. King, our United Way will speak to his legacy and ask volunteers to support our efforts around Youth Success. Volunteers will build Literacy Kits that include: a brand NEW children’s book, a craft or activity created by volunteers to pair with the book, an encouraging note, and additional resources around literacy. Books titles will focus on diverse readers, characters, equity, and inclusion themes.
We invite you to join your colleagues in making literacy kits to help build children’s home libraries. The books and interactive reading props will be distributed to local schools that work with United Way to ensure children are reading at grade-level by the fourth grade.
Incremental change through communities coming together is one of the legacies that Dr. King’s memory invokes.
