Thank you to everyone who donated!

United Way Children's Book Drive

Help us prevent summer learning loss in North Idaho!

 United Way understands that every child in Idaho must be able to read proficiently so he/she can be successful in school, work and life.  The United Ways of Idaho have joined forces to combat summer learning loss across the State by hosting our third annual United Way Children's Book Drive. Now, we have thousands of books to distribute to our community. If you're interested in helping with distribution, let us know!
