Thank You for Attending the Emerging Leaders White Party!

News from Young Leaders Society

Thank you for attending the Emerging Leaders White Party on Thursday! With your support, we were able to kick-off the STAR Readers Book Drive in a BIG way. In total, 239 kids in United Way’s STAR Readers project will receive a brand new bundle of books because of you.

Your support means that the book drive was already 36 percent to goal, before the drive even officially started. Wow! We accomplished this in just one night – demonstrating that together, young professionals are making an impact in our community!

We want to hear from you. Please take a few moments to fill out this brief survey and let us know about your experience at the White Party!

About United Way’s STAR Readers Project:
The STAR Readers project works with K-3 grade students with significant reading challenges. The goal is to help them read at grade level by 4th grade, so they are more likely to graduate high school. Kids who don’t read at grade level by 4th grade are 70% more likely to drop out of high school. Learn more about how you can support STAR Readers here.
