If children cannot read proficiently by the third grade, they fall behind for most of their school career. In Cherokee County, only 44% of third graders are testing at or above grade level. We need to get them to read more, and the answer is to give them access to books, at home and at school.
Join Broad River Electric as they help United Way of the Piedmont give our kids the access they need by providing new books to support first year teachers to establish classroom libraries.
Now through May 24th, we will be collecting new books or monetary donations at our Gaffney and Boiling Springs offices.
Members can drop NEW books by the drive-thru or ask your member service representative to help you make a monetary donation.
