United Way – help kids!

Did you know that a child not at a Grade 3 reading level on time is 4 times more likely to drop out of highschool?

Or how about that… most students experience summer learning loss, referred to as “summer slide”, causing them to fall behind or “slide” backwards during the school year?

United Way is taking action!

By connecting kids to their community.
Last year, 838 children and youth took part in after school recreational programming, giving them a sense of community and allowing them to just be kids.

By supporting emotional and physical wellness.
Last year, 3,318 meals were distributed to vulnerable youth at a shelter that may have otherwise gone without.

By focusing on engagement in learning.
Last year, 54 children participated in 2 week literacy and language camps. One camp had a focus on tackling summer “slide” and the other increasing the children’s English language skills. We saw great results from these first camps!
In both the literacy and language camp the children were excited to learn, the parents felt supported and the final testing showed that 92.5% of the students in the literacy camp maintained or improved their pre-program reading skills and on average in the language camps students overall vocabulary grew by 22 words.

How can you help?
United Way needs your support by helping to raise $25,000 to help even more kids be all that they can be in 2017.
Together we can give children and youth the start in life they need, we can prepare them for kindergarten, we can help them reach their grade level reading milestones and we can empower them to be healthy independent adults.

Please donate and help children and youth in your community reach their full potential.
