United Way of Cowlitz & Wahkiakum Counties is proud to champion:
Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Program
to children in Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties! The program offers Cowlitz or Wahkiakum resident children ages birth-5 years old, a brand new, age appropriate book every single month until their 5th birthday month. Books are delivered directly to the child's home! Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is considered a world-class program for childhood success and preparing children to enter kindergarten ready! Data has shown participating children have higher kindergarten assessment scores that non-participants, and family engagement in reading is also higher. United Way's impact goal is to get all students prepared for diverse post secondary opportunities and beyond in our communities and we are starting with our early learners kindergarten preparedness!
