In the Quad Cities, 14% of children aren’t ready for kindergarten and 32% of third graders aren’t reading at grade level. 

Your donation to United Way helps Quad Citizens overcome educational barriers by helping children effectively enter and perform well in school, graduating ready for college or career.
