Read Across
America Day

Celebrate the Love of Reading!

March 2, 2021


Join us for United Way of Salt Lake’s annual Read Across America Day on March 2 to celebrate the love for reading. Throughout the week, communities will come together to volunteer and provide in-kind donations to promote the value of reading and literacy in our schools – VIRTUALLY!


Many students especially need support this school year as the pandemic has exacerbated barriers to learning. We partner with schools across Salt Lake and Davis counties, engaging hundreds of volunteers and providing new books to students. This year, we invite volunteers to participate virtually to support literacy through in-kind donations, tutoring opportunities, and virtual projects.
