This year, the United Way of Greater Fall River is collaborating with Fall River RE-CREATION Lunch in the Park program and United Neighbor's Social Emotional Literacy program. They'll be offering story time and games for students after lunch is served throughout the summer.

At-risk students can lose more than a grade level of reading progress during the summer months, without intervention. Many students need the opportunity to practice positive interaction with peers as well as solving problems during those summer months as well. These games and books target both of these areas.

United Way of Greater Fall River is looking for volunteers to help with these social-emotional games and reading activities. All resources will be provided to the volunteers and the time commitment is about an hour a week in locations all over the city.
