365 DAYS OF CARING SIGNATURE SITE
Students who don’t read at grade level by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school than students who read proficiently. But when we work together to support early grade literacy,we help pave the way for more high school graduates by bridging the gap in academic success that far too many children in our communities face.
As we team up with the Philadelphia AFL-CIO and Philadelphia School District, United Way invites you to take part in our Day of Caring Signature Site event at Vare-Washington School on Saturday, September 24, 2016, to supplement United Way’s work to ensure all children have access to a quality education, from cradle to career. Your dedication through volunteer activities including building reading corners, leveling books, rebuilding playgrounds or creating outdoor educational classrooms will directly support the areas where children learn, play, and grow. As volunteers, you will see first hand the work that United Way and our donors and partners do every day to drive measurable, lasting Impact that none of us can achieve alone.
The Day of Caring Sponsorship deadline is August 19. For more information, please contact Ib Awoyale, Engagement Manager, at
