Grant used to purchase new books
October 31, 2018
United Way of Southwest Wyoming was awarded an $8,000 grant from Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation to increase the time parents spend reading out loud with their children.
With these funds, 3,200 books will be mailed to children in Sweetwater, Lincoln and Uinta Counties through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Southwest Wyoming.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails one book a month, for free, to every enrolled child’s home. Dolly Parton created the Imagination Library to guarantee access to books and to inspire parents to read to their children as much as possible.
