Wow - Y'all came through big time

We asked and you responded big time for our annual school supply drive. Our goal of 2,000 backpacks being filed was smashed with a final count of 2,700.

Thanks to our friends at UPS, they donated warehouse space, trucks and personnel to load and distribute the items to six area schools.

The graphic below says it all - THANK YOU!

Join our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten effort

Trident United Way is partnering with all three county libraries in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester to launch the area-wide for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten movement. The program promotes reading to ages birth to five to improve on regional literacy gaps.

  • During birth to 5 age range, 90% of a child’s brain development occurs. 
  • 57% of Tri-County children are deemed “not ready” when starting Kindergarten
  • More than half of Tri-County third graders are not reading at grade level.
