Day of Literacy 2013

One book really can make a difference.

United Way of Acadiana and KATC-TV3 shared our love of literacy during Day of Literacy on Thursday, March 7, 2013. This community-wide book drive, in partnership with local United Ways and school systems throughout Acadiana, puts age-appropriate books in the hands of students, helping to foster early grade literacy.

Take a look at the results!

More than 10,700 total books donated (with more than 5,600 coming from our four parishes)!

More than 1,200 students in Acadia, St. Martin, Vermilion and Lafayette parishes received
book bundles for extra reading practice at home!

Now that's something to get excited about!
