SACRAMENTO — Local residents can help El Dorado County kids reach for the stars by participating in United Way California Capital Region’s third annual STAR Readers Book Drive March 2-21. The drive benefits the group’s STAR Readers project that is working to increase graduation rates by improving early reading skills. STAR Readers nonprofit partners Boys & Girls Club El Dorado County Western Slope and New Morning Youth and Family Services in Placerville will receive a portion of the donated books.

The online book drive gives donors the chance to choose from four age-appropriate books for 650 children in kindergarten through third grade. Those who purchase books will receive a promotional code for a discounted admission to Runaway Stage Productions’ upcoming “Seussical the Musical.” To purchase books, visit yourlocalunitedway.org.

During the March 2-21 book drive, Clear Channel Radio will be collecting books at Sacramento-area Huntington Learning Centers that will be donated to United Way’s STAR Readers Book Drive. Participating locations include Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville and Sacramento.

United Way is partnering with Runaway Stage Productions, Fairytale Town, the Sacramento Bee, Huntington Learning Center, Scholastic, Sacramento Public Library, KSTE Talk 650 and KFBK News Radio. All books donated online or through events will be delivered to United Way’s STAR Readers project nonprofit partners: Amador-Tuolumne Community Resources, Boys & Girls Club of Placer County, Boys & Girls Club El Dorado County Western Slope, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento, Davis Bridge, New Morning Youth and Family Services, Yolo County Children’s Alliance and Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center.
