August United Way Community Connections Radio Show

60 minutes and you'll open up a real can of worms!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar was very, very hungry. He wanted someone to read with him, but was waiting for someone to say 'YES!' Will you say yes?
Research shows that children who learn to read on grade level by fourth grade are more likely to graduate high school and get a job that pays a wage that can sustain a family. On Saturday morning, August 29, on our monthly United Way Community Connections radio show on WTIC 1080 AM, we heard from United Way Readers, Aston Dakers from The Hartford and Brenda Pabon from Aetna, who are volunteering one hour a week to help kids improve their reading skills. Opportunities this fall are available at schools in Enfield, Hartford and New Britain beginning this October.
