Thank you to our volunteers
On Make a Difference Day 2015, about 80 volunteers including
families with children, older adults and teen groups helped United
Way Fox Cities to pack 1,000 literacy kits. The project was made
possible thanks to a grant provided through a partnership
with Depend, a product of Kimberly-Clark Corporation,
and United Way Worldwide coming together to promote
healthy, active, and independent living throughout an individual's
life, with a focus on volunteering.

The kits included new Scholastic books, "Eat Healthy with MyPlate" activity books, crayons and information for caregivers regarding the importance of reading to their children. Completed kits will be distributed to children to local help promote early childhood literacy. Because of the wonderful efforts of the volunteers, families will have new books to read and enjoy together!
