United Way of Broward County’s En­vi­sion United affin­ity group helped raise funds to get books for the chil­dren at Morrow El­e­men­tary School in North Laud­erdale.

The group adopted the chil­dren through the United Way’s Club Con­nect Adopt-A-School pro­gram. The goal of Club Con­nect is to en­sure all stu­dents are read­ing at grade level by the end of third grade.

Stu­dents will now enjoy a “read­ing oa­sis” in­side their school li­brary that­pro­vides a quiet and com­fort­able place to read the more than 400 books pro­vided by Scholas­tic.

In ad­di­tion to the read­ing oa­sis and do­nated books, ev­ery par­ent will re­ceive fre­quent email mes­sag­ing about the im­por­tance of read­ing as well as coupons or other in­cen­tives for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Club Con­nect pro­gram.

Gabriella Vi­cuna reads one of the hun­dreds of books do­nated to Morrow El­e­men­tary School through Club Con­nect.
