This summer, United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) is distributing thousands of books to local children to encourage summer reading and learning! We are making sure children have access to books in order to stop the summer slide, which is the loss of reading skills during the summer months. UWNNS needs volunteers like you to help us prepare books and assemble them into our Summer Book Bags!
