Introducing Be a Book Bunny!
In 2017, YLS partnered with the Midlands Reading Consortium (MRC), a United Way of the Midlands' volunteer tutoring initiative, to support pre-kindergarten through second-grade students who are falling behind their peers in reading. Be a Book Bunny distributes literacy bags to over 500 students served by MRC to help children build personal libraries to encourage reading both in and out of the classroom to develop healthy reading habits. Be a Book Bunny sponsors fill Book Bunny reading totes with eight new, age-appropriate books and school supplies. There is no limit to how many totes a business, family or individual can provide. Each tote is tagged by each child's grade and gender to provide books of their interest.United Way's Young Leaders Society (YLS) has partnered with the Midlands Reading Consortium, a United Way of the Midlands volunteer tutoring initiative, to target pre-kindergarten through second-grade students who are falling behind their peers in reading.
