Read Across Kenosha Event


United Way of Kenosha County's 11th Annual Read Across Kenosha event was held on March 3, 2020 in conjunction with Read Across America and the birthday of Dr. Seuss.  More than 200 classrooms across Kenosha County registered and over 4,200 students heard various Dr. Seuss stories.  Thanks to our volunteers and sponsors, our 2020 event was a huge success!


Volunteers will read a Dr. Seuss book provided by United Way of Kenosha County and engage students with questions about the story.  By volunteering, our readers show students why reading is so important and, most importantly, show them that we care about their success.  


On the day of the event, volunteers convene at Gateway Technical College's Madrigrano Hall at 8:00 AM for a brief program and to pick up their materials.  After a group photo, volunteers depart for their assigned classrooms.
