In August 2017, United Way partnered with community businesses and volunteers to provide every 1st grader in Lebanon County with a Student Success Kit! More than 1,780 1st graders received these kits, filled with school supplies and educational resources for students and their parents.
Plus, students received a “Class of 2029 Live United” t-shirt, to help them set the goal of high school graduation!
Thank you to these generous community partners for making this program possible!
