Read Across America Day

Trident United Way's 4th Annual Read Across America Day in Charleston, SC

Thank you to all our volunteers and schools that participated in Trident United Way's 4th Annual Read Across America Day!

On Tuesday, March 2nd, 40 volunteers read virtually to students in 42 classrooms at Harleyville Elementary, Matilda Dunston Elementary, Newington Elementary, Pinehurst Elementary and Sanders Clyde Elementary. Volunteers found fun and unique ways to engage with the students while sharing their love of reading! 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!
