Get involved

How can you become involved?

Adopt a school!

We are looking for individuals, organizations, and communities to 'adopt’ the schools that need it the most; those with no school library and/or with a significant number of children receiving free school meals. 

By becoming involved this way, you can help ensure that we get the books that children need into their hands so that they can discover the joy of reading and improve their academic achievement.

You can adopt a school individually, work with your workplace or organization to become a supporter, or form a group and work together as a team.

Want to volunteer?

Every business and donor who becomes involved will be offered the opportunity to volunteer with their local United Way Reading Oasis.

Sample volunteer activities include helping to assemble library furniture, display, sticker/catalogue and refresh books, and (most importantly!) spend time reading with the children where you volunteer.
