Big Day of Giving Launches Literacy Further

Big Day of Giving Launches Literacy Further


The Sacramento- area community exceeded expectations by opening their hearts to support United Way California Capital Region’s mission of building stronger, healthier and more compassionate communities. In a single 24 hours, an impressive $20,895 was raised for the STARS (Students & Tutors Achieving Reading Success) online tutoring program!

If kids aren’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, they will have a hard time keeping up across multiple subjects for years to come. Having a consistent positive adult role model, like a tutor, can improve children’s confidence and performance in all school subjects.
