Read Across America

Sign up TODAY to be a volunteer reader in a
Pre-K or Kindergarten Classroom on
Friday, March 6, 2020

This year we will be sending volunteers into classrooms on Friday, March 6

For many years United Way’s Success By 6 initiative with the help of the Alabama Power Service Organization has been able to provide volunteers readers for our pre-k and kindergarten classrooms in Calhoun County. We are honored to be able to provide each volunteer with a shirt and each classroom with a new book for their library. 

Success by 6 has a focus on making sure each child is ready for kindergarten as they begin. Part of that focus is child literacy. United Way is blessed to be able to partner with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to provide age appropriate books to children in Calhoun County from birth to 5. 

Read Across America week allows are volunteers to remind students just how important reading is and how much fun reading can be for them now and as they grow older!

If you would like to sign up as a volunteer reader for a pre-k or kindergarten classroom in Calhoun County, please click the “Sign Up Now” link below. 

On Tuesday, March 3, we will host a volunteer reader breakfast. You will be able to pick up your t-shirt, book, have breakfast, and hear from a special volunteer reader, who will demonstrate creative ways to read and engage the children. 

We look forward to having you join us! If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Smith,
