United Way of Trumbull County, the Cafaro Foundation and the Eastwood Mall are excited to announce our Annual Seuss-tastic Reading Challenge! This challenge is open to each and every public school

(K-2 classrooms) in Trumbull County!


Participating classrooms will receive a Seuss-tastic Reading Challenge certificate to display in their classroom and will be entered into a drawing for a CHANCE TO WIN an all-expense paid field trip to the Eastwood Mall to attend Dr. Seuss' BIG BIRTHDAY BASH on Monday, March 2, 2020! 

(Two participating classrooms will be randomly drawn and announced the week of February 17th.)


Our Dr. Seuss’s BIG Birthday Bash field trip includes the following:

  • Paid school busing to and from the Eastwood Mall

  • The Cat in the Hat and other Dr. Seuss favorites will be present

  • A Dr. Seuss story with our surprise “Celebrity” reader

  • A Seuss-tastic craft

  • An Aquarium Adventure where your students will learn all about the underwater world

  • Complimentary lunch and beverages in the food court

  • And what’s a Birthday BASH without a birthday treat!



Participating classrooms are asked to complete any 8 of the 12 reading challenges found on the attached Seuss-tastic Reading Challenge form.  For every classroom that completes 8 challenges, they must secure the school principal's signature and return their completed form on or before Friday, February 14, 2020.


The completed forms can be scanned and emailed to marketing@eastwoodmall.com or mailed to: The Eastwood Mall Complex, c/o The Marketing Department, 5555 Youngstown-Warren Road, Unit 680, Niles, Ohio 44446.
