Local residents can help 145 Yolo County kids reach for the stars by participating in United Way California Capital Region’s second annual STAR Readers Book Drive Feb. 18-March 8. The drive benefits more than 650 children across five counties in United Way’s STAR Readers project, which is working to increase graduation rates by improving early reading skills.

The Davis Bridge Foundation and the Yolo County Children’s Alliance are local partners in United Way’s STAR Readers project.

“Up through third grade, children are learning to read. In fourth grade and beyond, they’re reading to learn,” said Steve Heath, United Way president and CEO. “Children reading at grade level entering fourth grade are far more likely to graduate from high school. This book drive will help more than 650 local kids have access to books that will set them on a path for success.”

The online book drive gives donors the chance to purchase age-appropriate books for children in kindergarten through third grade: “A Green, Green Garden” by Mercer Mayer, “Marley: Firehouse Dog” by John Grogan, “Frog and Toad are Friends” by Arnold Lobel and “The Enormouse Pearl Heist” by Geronimo Stilton.

 

Books range from $3.99 to $6.99. To purchase books, visit www.yourlocalunitedway.org.

The goal is to collect more than 650 books, one for each child in United Way’s STAR Readers project.
