This Saturday, June 21st, United Way launches it’s first annual DAY OF ACTION nationwide. The focus of this program is to help all families benefit from the value of early childhood education. Programs will help parents ready their toddlers and pre-schoolers for their educational adventure that begins in Kindergarten. This effort is a piece of the larger project United Way has kicked off – LIVE UNITED. The goal of which is to bring about changes needed in our communities through collective efforts.
“Advancing the common good means recognizing that we are all connected and interdependent. It involves creating opportunities for a better life for all. When individuals, organizations, governments and businesses set aside their special interests and work together, we can make a difference. Living United means being part of the change. – Robert C. Reifsnyder, President, United Way Greater Cincinnati
In addition to planned activites in counties all over the Tri-State, United Way will unveil five Born Learning Trails. These projects were truly a collective effort with assistance from community partners: Cincinnati Parks, City of Bellevue, City of Covington Parks & Recreation, Boone County Parks Department, Grant County Parks & Recreation, and corporate partners Citi and Toyota in Northern Kentucky. Born Learning Trails offer families with small children physical activities which lead to fun and education – the perfect combination to help your child fall in love with learning from the start.
