Red Noses & Literacy

Flashback to spring when we encouraged you to watch the Red Nose Day telethon on NBC? Here’s a few photos to refresh your memory.

Your United Way is helping our community’s kids to succeed in school. Our Young Leaders are helping children in Brooklyn, Garfield Heights, Maple Heights and Warrensville Heights read at grade level. United Way also offers opportunities for summer learning which include lessons on literacy combined with enrichment activities. And lastly, we’re helping high schoolers cross the stage to receive a diploma.

Thanks to the grant from Red Nose Day, United Way can accelerate our footprint in local literacy initiatives. But we can’t do it without you, stay tuned for volunteer opportunities and ways you can help with our work in education.
