Be the One to Give the Gift of Reading this Holiday Season

'Tis the season to BE THE ONE. This year you can BE THE ONE for a local child (or multiple children) by giving to support Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and United Way of Central Illinois.

This year your donation will go farther thanks to SCHEELS. They will match your gift (up to $2,500). Thank you to SCHEELS for stepping up to be the one.

Thanks to generous donors like you, United Way of Central Illinois has provided more than 169,000 books to local children across Sangamon and Menard Counties. We know that reading at a young age is a huge indicator of success later on. The monthly books provided by this program as well as family engagement activities encourage the love of reading from an early age.

BE THE ONE to give the gift of reading.

BE THE ONE to inspire a love of learning.

BE THE ONE to give a year-round gift to a child.
