United Way Programs

United Way of Lewis County and the Lewis County Rotary Foundation are proud to sponsor Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in Lewis County. The Imagination Library provides free, high quality, age-appropriate books to children birth to five years of age living in Lewis County. The program is free to all children, regardless of the family's income. 


The United Way Reading Buddies program is a vital volunteer program that impacts grade-level reading success for local kids.  Volunteers work directly with students on a weekly basis and have the power to help boost academic achievement for a child - setting the right track for a brighter future. Studies show that if a child is not reading at grade level by 3rd grade when they reach the stage where they need to “read to learn,” it greatly impacts their ability to graduate on time.  Click here to learn more!

Women United launched a new program, Supplies Period.  Supplies Period is an effort to reduce the number of middle school girls who have to miss school due to period poverty.  20% of girls have to miss school due to their inability to obtain period supplies.  United Way's Women United is helping middle schools in Lewis County provide period supplies for their students, helping to reduce the number of days girls have to miss school and miss out on education.  For more information about our Supplies Period program and Women United, click here.

The United Learning Center (ULC) will facilitate the comprehensive education of our community's youth through the founding entities' combined skills, resources, and connections. The ULC will be comprised of a high-quality, affordable early learning program for working families, an after-school mentorship program and summer engagement opportunities through the Boys & Girls Club of Lewis County, and the Discover! Children's Museum, which will ignite the love of learning in children of all ages.
