United "4" Kids

United Way of Trumbull County is committed to supporting kids so they have they may thrive and reach their full potential.  

Reading Great by 8

United Way of Trumbull County implemented the Reading Great by 8 Early Literacy Initiative during the summer of 2014. This initiative is a continuum of programing that reaches children from birth to age 8, each designed to increase the number of Trumbull County children reading at grade level by grade three, with an emphasis on children from low-to moderate-

income families. 

     In 2023, students entering first grade and second grade participated in programming to address reading and phonics, math, social-emotional wellness, and visual and perceptual motor skills.  Books and activities centered around bugs and dinosaurs to keep the kids engaged while learning.  

This program was possible due to funding received by the PNC Charitable Trust.

School Pantries & Supplies

Food, clothing, and essentials are provided to support local students. United Way also placed fridges in two  Warren City schools to offer kids healthier, fresher foods. 

Every year, United Way provides book bags through the Stuff the Bus program sponsored by Huntington Bank.

Kindergarten Readiness

Starting school at any time can cause anxiety but for kids entering kindergarten, it can be an overwhelming experience.  Readiness kits help ease the transition for both kids and parents.
