Read Across Liberty

The Read Across Liberty Program has been in existence for 15 years and has placed nearly 40,000 books in the hands of Liberty County’s youngest students. (what)

·         The United Way of the Coastal Empire administers this program in an effort to promote early childhood literacy and bring literacy nutrition to every young readers home in our community. (why)

·         Access to quality, age appropriate reading material in a child’s home is paramount to their growth and development (defined as literacy nutrition)- especially in those early years. (why)

·         With advancements in technology and the new digital book era, being read aloud to and reading aloud has become somewhat of a lost art, but children can thrive even more when it’s a part of their development. (why)

·         Youth development and education is a corner stone of UWCE’s mission to our four county area.  (why)

·         This year, the Read Across Liberty Program is fully sponsored by Vaden Nissan in Hinesville and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have both their financial support and volunteers from their staff. (who)

·         Thursday, March 28th, we will give away 3000 books and send an army of 175 volunteers into the local school system here in Liberty County and on Fort Stewart. (when and where)
