United Way


(formally known as Book of the Month Club)

Kids succeed in school when they have books at home and parents who read with them.

Help build home libraries for children in need.

Each month, we distribute books to more than 700 young children along with other important resources to help their families thrive.

We love being part of your family's reading journey and providing books to increase your Home Libraries.

Enrollment is currently closed, but to stay updated on our other programs and services, please subscribe to our newsletter!

If you have any questions, please contact our Education Events Coordinator, Esther Peinado, by phone at 661-889-5745 or by email at Esther.P@uwkern.org.
Happy Reading!
