Thanks to the Power Of U, we are happy to announce that Carol and Barney Barnett have awarded UWCF an extra $10,000 for the ReadingPals program! The bonus is because of the 200 amazing volunteers in our community who visit schools and teach students the joy of reading. Out of Florida’s 15 ReadingPals programs, we are one of only three that are fully staffed!
A portion of the extra funds will go towards a special project that we will announce this summer.

For more information on ReadingPals or to become a ReadingPal, contact Sylvia Palmer at 863-648-1500 ext. 278.
