Racking your brain for the perfect Mother's Day gift?  We have a special gift idea just in mind for you!

United Way of Northern Nevada
and the Sierra

May 2017
Remember your mom this Mother's Day by thanking her for teaching you to read so that you could read to learn. Or, help a struggling mom by providing life-long literacy skills for her children.

Over half of all children living in northern Nevada are not reading proficiently by third grade. There is a direct correlation between grade level reading by grade three, high school graduation and future career success. Help United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra double our impact as we collectively work to improve early grade reading.

Your gift of $10, $30, $100 or more will help almost 7,000 children and families achieve incredible reading goals this year. Please Give >>

On behalf of United Way of Northern Nevada, thanks for investing in an achievable solution for a thriving community.  We wish you and your family a Happy Mother's Day!
