United Way Literacy Kit Leaders

Early learning resources are critical to ensuring kids are ready for kindergarten and reading at grade-level by third grade.

We need the support of volunteer groups to distribute thousands of kits to young learners in our region. Any group donating 100 completed kits or $1,500 will be recognized as a United Way Literacy Kit Leader.

Contact us at volunteer@yourunitedway.org to get started.

As a Literacy Kit Leader, you will receive:
  • Your group name and organization logo on printed materials inside United Way Literacy Kits
  • Your group name and organization logo featured on our website
  • A shout out in our Volunteer Newsletter which reaches more than 20,000 community members
  • A shout out on United Way’s social media pages
2022-23 Process

If your donation is received between September 2022 and June 2023, your name/logo recognition will be in Kits that are distributed between September 2023 and June 2024. If your group anticipates reaching Literacy Kit Leader recognition level after the last donation deadline, please inform the Volunteer Coordinator in advance to ensure inclusion of your logo in Literacy Kit materials.
