(WTXL) — Molly Lord from United Way of the Big Bend joined ABC 27 on Tuesday morning to tell us about Read United.
Read United was developed to encourage a love of reading in children and provide resources to help them on their literacy journey.
Each year, Read United enlists community volunteers to read in every first-grade public school classroom in the Big Bend region.
Every classroom gets brand new book, to add to their library. In the last nine years over 39,000 books have been distributed!
