Summer Learning Day 2017
On July 13 th , UWNNS volunteers celebrated  National Summer Learning Day  at One World Children's Academy, a local day care center in Reno. From story times to hopscotch, volunteers made summer count for the Pre-K children by encouraging hands-on learning and imaginative play outside. Volunteers were associates from Umpqua Bank and Scheels, generously giving their time to inspire our young learners.
