We Need Your Help - Summer Smarts 2018





We’re counting on you to increase our impact through United Way Summer Smarts, an initiative that provides summer reading and nutrition programs to children. 

Thanks to our donors, last summer, more than 1,300 children participated in summer programs and 1,600 received nutritious meals. This year, there are three ways you can help us make an even bigger impact!

They stay on track and start school ready to learn. When children don’t participate in summer learning programs, they start school 4-6 weeks behind.

Together, we can build healthy minds and bodies.
