“Tag In” For Summer Reading

When teachers tag out for the summer, it’s time for parents to “TAG IN” to keep children reading.

Through United Way’s TAG IN program, our first priority is to ensure parents, especially those of elementary-aged school children, understand why it is so critical to keep kids reading over the summer. Then, we strive to give children the resources they need to read.

Students at a local elementary school are offered a free book fair using books collected from United Way’s Annual Children’s Book Drive to keep them interested in reading and learning all summer long.

How You Can Help

YOUR DONATION helps us to reach and support our highest-risk students with strategies to ensure children don’t fall behind in the summertime.

“The Book Fair was amazing! The kids loved it. Too many students do not have access to books over the summer months and the fair helped them keep their reading skills at grade level.”
