Read Across America Day

Read Across America Day is being held throughout the Tri-County area as a day to celebrate the joy of reading!

Volunteers will visit classrooms at local elementary schools during the morning on Friday, March 6, to read a book (or two) to students in CD to 3rd grade as part of Read Across America Day. Reading aloud to students can help them develop their literacy skills. With 52% of third graders in Tri-County region reading at grade level, there is a lot of opportunity to support Trident United Way’s work in education and share your love of reading with local students!



Sign up to visit a local elementary school classroom and share your love of reading on Read Across America Day!

Each volunteer reader shift on March 6th will last approximately 1 hour.
