World Wide Technology (WWT) and United Way of Greater St. Louis recently partnered on a volunteer project to recently assemble 1,500 reading kits to deliver to several local nonprofits and children throughout the region.
Through United Way's Service2Go program, WWT employees sorted and crafted hundreds of Pocket Pal reading kits on-site in Edwardsville, Illinois over several days. The kits contain books, stuffed animals, and other essentials to help local students and children increase their literacy skills.
"WWT is committed to helping the community through our Global Community Impact programs, and our volunteer initiatives, done in collaboration with partners like United Way. United Way and its Volunteer Center were instrumental in assisting WWT in identifying and developing a team building," said Michelle Boehm, WWT Global Operations Director.
"Service2Go project was host in our four North American Integration Center facilities in Edwardsville. Our employees value the opportunity to work together to give back to the Edwardsville and East St. Louis communities."
Service2Go is one of the projects United Way offers projects that are designed to meet the greatest needs of the community.
