United Way understands that every child in Idaho must be able to read proficiently so they 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 fourth annual United Way Children's Book Drive. Now, we will have thousands of books to distribute to our community.  

Books are provided to children birth to age five through our partners in childcare and preschool programs, READY! for Kindergarten workshops, and at community events. 

Partnerships with national book distributors allow us maximize financial donations. Text the word "BOOK" to the number 40403 to give securely, and check out these great lists of children's books!

Do you, your company, or group want to get even more involved?

  • Host an internal Book Drive – promote and collect books within your business or organization – a great team building tool!
  • Run a Neighborhood Book Collection Drive – have your employees, teammates, or group members distribute print materials and collect books from local residents. Great hands-on opportunity with fantastic exposure!
