United Way of Southwest Michigan is supporting early childhood literacy alongside Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

United Way is asking the community to help support childhood literacy by sponsoring a child to participate in the Imagination Library program.

The program serves children from birth through age 5 with the goal of helping kids develop reading skills and be prepared for school.

Kids who are enrolled in the program will get a hand-picked, age-appropriate book delivered to their house every month until their fifth birthday.

Community members can sponsor a child in the program for up to five years:

  • Sponsoring a child for one year
    • 12 books - $25
  • Sponsor a child for three years
    • 36 books - $75
  • Sponsor a child for the whole program (five years)
    • 60 books - $125

Parton’s Imagination Library is free of charge to all children under age five, regardless of income. The cost for United Way to provide the program is $25 per child per year.

So far, more than 7,000 kids are enrolled in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties.

United Way has a March goal of getting sponsorship for 250 kids for the full five years.
