SOHO Book Program
Through a new partnership with The Soho Center, we distributed 10,000 children’s books with the assistance of UVA student-athletes. Our public preschool partners received over 3,000 books in the spring, to be delivered throughout the summer to children starting public preschool in the fall. The Soho Center partnership was renewed in February 2020, as the United Way helped fund RED!-Pre-K. This program delivered 7,256 new children’s books to the public preschool programs in Albemarle, Charlottesville, and Louisa to build classroom libraries and offer economically disadvantaged children new books to take home.
