Today, the United Way of the Wabash Valley announced the recipients of the “Success By 6” grants.
A total of $8,915 was awarded through the latest cycle of open grants supporting early childhood literacy projects.
The purpose of “Success by 6” is to ensure local children have nurturing learning environments during the critical development years of birth to age 6.
The awards this year will affect over 375 local children in the community. Each grant program required an activity focused around a book and each child must receive a copy of the book related to the activity.
It also required parent/family activities to be included in the event.
Each grant was a maximum of $1,000 each.
