Raising Readers

THANK YOU to everyone who donated to this year's Raising Readers Book Drive.

THANK YOU to all of the donation locations, Rugrats Resale, Wegmans, Perry Wellington Realty, the University Park branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and our program sponsor, McQuaide Blasko Attorneys at Law.


54.6% of children in Centre County are at risk for poor school performance.  

Reading with young children for just 20 minutes a day helps them be prepared to enter school with early literacy skills.

Putting books in the hands of our little ones and being read to by an adult caregiver gets kids excited about books and reading!

The Centre County United Way Partner Network and McQuaide Blasko Attorneys want to give all kids in Centre County the chance to enter school with the skills they need to experience success.
