United Way of Southeast Missouri (UWSEMO) is pleased to announce it is the recipient of a two-member grant from the DeltaCorps Regional Authority, a division of AmeriCorps. The grant provides two members for a new program, Read to Excel (R2X), an expansion of United Way's valuable Read to Succeed program in the Cape Girardeau Public Schools.
Read to Succeed began at Blanchard Elementary in 2011 and now provides volunteer tutoring to new readers in kindergarten and first grade in all Cape elementary schools. DeltaCorps will fund two members to extend the program into grades 2-6. The grants in the form of human resources, rather than financial resources, were awarded to nonprofit organizations that have already distinguished themselves as
influential advocates for change in the Delta region.
