Ready-to-Learn Drive

March - June

We need YOUR help to collect books for area kids!

Rappahannock United Way is collecting new, age-appropriate books for four- and five-year-old students to distribute to Head Start and Virginia PreSchool Initiative students! Literacy and early learning are critical to ensuring children are ready for kindergarten and reading at grade level by third grade. Help local students reach these important milestones by donating books or hosting a book drive of your own.

Host a Book Drive

Bring together friends, neighbors, or colleagues and host a book drive at home or work.  These tools will help you spread the word!
