Donate your new or slightly used English and Spanish children and young adult books.  

With the Schools of Hope program, United Way is working to ensure children who are struggling with reading receive the extra help needed in order to reach reading proficiency.

Studies show the number of books a child owns is directly related to their ability to read and do well in school. Give the gift of reading and make a difference in a child's life. Donate a book today.
