United Through Reading

The goal of United Through Reading is to increase family bonding despite separation, through reading. Children sometimes experience a difficult separation from a parent due to military deployment, incarceration or medical treatments. United Through Reading helps children feel close to their parents by taping the parent reading a book to the child, and sending it to the child on a DVD. They also capture the child’s emotions and reactions to the stories and send the DVD to the parent, providing much-needed encouragement. United Through Reading needs donations, which can be made online at or by mail to 11555 Sorrento Valley Rd, Suite 203, San Diego, CA 92121. They are also looking for volunteers in organization and administration to help keep the program going strong.
