Join United Way of Anchorage, Raising Cane’s, 101.3 KGOT, and Cradle to Career Anchorage partners for the READ UNITED Book Drive to help kids build their home libraries and support families in raising readers. In Anchorage, only 40% of 3rd-grade children are reading proficiently, and we aim to increase that to 80% by 2026. Together, we can help every child succeed, no matter their circumstances.
DONATE ANY NEW OR GENTLY USED BOOKS FOR AGES 0 TO 12.
