STAYING CONNECTED

 

A centerpiece of United Through Reading’s presence in San Diego, CA, the Storybook Ball brings 350 corporate executives, senior military leaders, long-time supporters, and military families together for a special evening that celebrates military families who have forged meaningful connections through the read aloud experience and gives recognition to the corporate, public policy, and military leaders whose vision and support have been vital to United Through Reading’s mission delivery.

In the face of a global pandemic in 2020, one thing became obvious – everyone’s need for personal connection. In our 32-year history of connecting military families during times of separation, we know this all too well. United Through Reading has connected 2.5 million military family members – through deployments, drill weekends, and now global pandemics. Storytime with United Through Reading helps families stay connected, remain resilient, and build a love of reading.
