Granite United Way Distributes Books to Children during National Reading Month
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as #GivingTuesday and raises awareness about giving to nonprofits during the holiday season. For the second year in a row, Granite United Way used the day to promote awareness and raise funds to purchase books for kids across New Hampshire and Vermont.
Over the past two years, Granite United Way has worked with local nonprofits in each of its six regions and the generosity of donors during #GivingTuesday, has enabled the organization to purchase over 1,000 books for children. The distribution happens during the month of March to celebrate Read Across America and National Reading Month.
