Help us raise reading levels in Sacramento!



A critical aspect of a child’s success depends on learning how to read. A child living in a book desert, with limited access to books may not have the opportunity to develop the skills to become an engaged reader. Unfortunately, book deserts are often a reality for families living in low income communities. In fact, some of the lowest income neighborhoods in the country report having one available book for every 300 children.

As part of our Square One Project, United Way is committed to children reading at grade level. Students proficient in reading are more likely to be engaged in school, graduate from high school, and go to college.

With your help, you can help us install little libraries across Sacramento. Team up with your coworkers to fund one library at the cost of $500 or make a donation to contribute to the cost of a library.
