Join us for Read United: Summer and help STOP the 'Summer Slide’!

Did you know that children can lose up to two months of learning over the summer break? It’s called the 'Summer Slide’. United Way of Pierce County is partnering with local schools and summer meal sites to provide free summer learning activities all summer long to help stop the 'summer slide’.

WHAT: SUMMER LEARNING 2018 WHEN: Weekly from June 18-August 24, 2018 WHERE: Summer meal sites in Franklin Pierce, Bethel, Clover Park and Tacoma School Districts Meal site start times run from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

It’s a great way to spend your lunch hour as the time commitment is about an hour!

United Way staff and volunteers will be giving away FREE books for children with limited access to books over the summer break. Volunteers can read with children and help them choose books.

We will be releasing the site schedule in mid- to late-May, so "RESPOND" to be added to the notification list! Ready to sign up as a volunteer? CLICK HERE to fill out our volunteer application.
