Our Community's kids need your help! 

Programs like Summer Book Give- Away keep kids in our community from loosing 2-3 months of reading gains over the summer. These programs wouldn't be possible without generous support from donors like you.

Currently, United Way has funding to run this program for 2nd and 3rd graders in three elementary school. But they need our help to include kindergarten and 1st graders, too! 

If we all give a little, we can expand this program so more students go home with 12 books to keep and read over the summer!

Just $35 sponsors one child to receive 12 books of their choice. $750 will sponsor a classroom. $3,000 will sponsor the entire grade.

This is an easy way to make a big difference in children’s lives. Will you please help and make a gift that is meaningful to you?

You can make your gift to support United Way today! No gift is too small!  We want to make it easy for employees to make a one time donation. If you would prefer to give your gift through payroll deduction, paper pledge forms are available. 

Thank you for supporting Muncie Community Schools’ kids through United Way!
