United Way program promotes literacy

The Missouri Slope Areawide United Way Women's Leadership Circle will participate Thursday in the nationwide United Way Day of Action to promote the importance of literacy and early childhood learning by reading to children.
"They will send out 32-34 volunteers to day cares or shelters in Bismarck-Mandan to read to prekindergarten children and then lead the kids in a craft (related to the book)," said Melissa Wulf, marketing director for the local United Way.
