United Way of Grant County is thrilled to announce a landmark achievement for its early literacy initiative. The organization has registered its 1,000th child in the Grant County Imagination Library program. This milestone is a testament to the ongoing commitment of Grant County residents, community partners, and the diligent work of the United Way team in promoting early childhood literacy.
The Grant County Imagination Library, an initiative funded and administered by United Way of Grant County, has been making strides to boost reading proficiency levels by sending high-quality, age-appropriate books to children aged five and under in Grant County. With the belief that every child deserves access to books and the chance to fall in love with reading, the program aims to tackle the statewide issue of low reading proficiency.
Evan Gilmore, Marketing & Communications Coordinator of United Way of Grant County, said, “This is not just a numerical milestone. It’s a testament to our community’s shared vision and commitment to fostering a love of reading and learning in our children from an early age. Every child registered represents a brighter future and a more literate Grant County.”
While this achievement is significant, United Way of Grant County recognizes that there’s still a long road ahead. Parents and guardians in Grant County are encouraged to continue signing up their children for this free program at uwgrant.com/books.
United Way of Grant County would like to express its deepest gratitude to its sponsors, supporters, and the community for their continued support in making this achievement possible. As the organization continues to push towards its goal of increasing reading proficiency in Grant County, this 1,000th registration is a reminder that when we Live United, we can inspire change, one book at a time.
