Read United was developed by the United Way for Southeastern Michigan to promote and enhance literacy initiatives throughout our region. As part of this effort, United Way Community Schools partners are participating in special programming aimed at encouraging students and their families to meet reading goals and participate in literacy activities, all while earning fun prizes donated by United Way and its partners.
A student's success depends so much on their access to print materials - that's why we are committed to putting more books in the hands of students across our region while encouraging our students and families to read together. Through these efforts, we hope to bring awareness to the systemic barriers that impede literacy.
Read United is a United Way for Southeastern Michigan initiative to bring awareness and support to literacy initiatives throughout the region.
Funds raised through Read United will be used to support the following initiatives:
