1:00 – 3:00 PM
United Way Suncoast Tampa Office
5201 W Kennedy Blvd #600, Tampa, FL 33609

Children who are read to are more likely to become good readers. And children who read at grade level by the fourth grade are four times more likely to graduate from high school.

Become a ReadingPal.

ReadingPals is a United Way program where volunteers provide positive reinforcement and personal attention to a child (kindergarten through 3rd grade) who would benefit from a little extra reading support. We aim to not only improve children’s reading skills, but also impart a love of reading.

As a ReadingPal volunteer, you will:

  • Commit to regularly meet one hour a week with the same child as a ReadingPal Tutor.

There are 6 after-school sites to choose from across Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

For more information and to submit interest in becoming a ReadingPal, contact Nicole Brown at nbrown@uwsuncoast.org or 813-274-0998.

Tax-A-Thon 2019

United Way Suncoast is pleased to announce our 2019 Tax-a-thon! In addition to preparing tax returns, this will be an all-around Financial Stability Event. The goal is to promote savings among adults by getting them to pledge their refund. We will also promote youth financial literacy with a space to keep children entertained while parents have their taxes done, The Kids Corner. United Way Suncoast partners will provide services such as opening banks accounts, credit counselors providing scores, community resources such as Low Income Taxpayers Clinic, and partners from the Economic Prosperity Center.

United Way Suncoast’s VITA Tax-a-thon will take place at Hillsborough Community College (HCC) Dale Mabry on Saturday, February 9th 8:00 am – 8:00 pm, located at 4001 W. Tampa Bay Blvd, Social Science Building, 2nd Floor, Tampa FL 33614.

If you would like information and have other questions regarding our VITA Tax-a-thon, please do not hesitate to contact Margie Perez, 813-274-0920, mperez@uwsuncoast.org.
