Raising Readers in Story County

Read to Succeed

United Way of Story County supports the Food Bank of Iowa program 'Backpack Buddies' that provides backpacks of food to feed disadvantaged elementary-age children over the weekend and during school breaks. RRSC contributes to this program by giving personally selected gift books to tuck in backpacks three times a year, typically before holidays and spring and summer breaks. In the 2015-16 school year, 195 students were served. We have added Colo-NESCO and Collins-Maxwell schools to the program in 2016-17! 

School Districts Served: Ames, Ballard, Collins-Maxwell, Colo-NESCO, Gilbert, Nevada, Roland-Story
