Help a child reach the STARs

By From page B3 | February 27, 2014

Local residents can help Yolo County kids reach for the stars by participating in the United Way California Capital Region’s third annual STAR Readers Book Drive, March 2-21.

The drive benefits the group’s STAR Readers project, which is working to increase graduation rates by improving early reading skills. Two STAR Readers nonprofit partners in Yolo County — the Davis Bridge Educational Foundation and the Yolo County Children’s Alliance — will receive some of the donated books.
The online book drive gives donors the chance to choose from four age-appropriate books for 650 children in kindergarten through third grade. Those who purchase books will receive a promotional code for a discounted admission to Runaway Stage Productions’ upcoming “Seussical the Musical.” To purchase books, visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org.
The drive will kick off from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 2, at Fairytale Town on as part of the Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration. Actors from Runaway Stage Productions will perform excerpts from their upcoming “Seussical the Musical” between between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Guests who bring a children’s book to donate will receive a discount coupon to use on a future visit to Fairytale Town. The books will be donated to the STAR Readers Book Drive.
