On June 21, 2019, 150 children ages 3-12 received a new book to take home and an opportunity to engage in literacy-related events through Day of Caring. Day of Caring is part of United Way Worldwide's Day of Action. More than 400 communities and thousands of individuals participate. Participating Community Partners included Early Learning Centers, Guadalupe Parkway Neighborhood Centers, Literacy Lubbock, Lubbock Boys & Girls Club, and Parenting Cottage. United Way's Loaned Executive volunteers spearheaded this project creating fun and engaging activites to help children develop a passion for reading.
