Donate to United Way's Emerging Readers program to purchase brand new, age appropriate books for children and teens at seven nonprofit agencies across Milwaukee and Waukesha counties! Your donation will share the love of reading with over 250 children in need and promote literacy within underserved populations. This year, books will be purchased through Martha Merrell’s Books & Toys, a locally owned, Waukesha based small business.
