Request to be adopted directly through the form below or through your Local United Way.
We will notify you right away when we have matched your school with a sponsor! Once the sponsor has been secured, we will send you an award letter to bring Club Connect and the Reading Oasis to your school.
Create plan and timeline:
Choose the location for the Reading Oasis installation, visualize all the exciting ways the space will be used within the school and select a date for the Opening Ceremony!
Prepare for the Installation:
Work with Club Connect, United Way and the sponsor to determine the best way to set up the Reading Oasis. Everyone can be involved in the installation process based on the preference of each partner. The materials take 8-10 weeks to arrive and Club Connect memberships can be distributed as soon as 1 week after the materials are ordered.
Install Reading Oasis and Celebrate:
Assemble book shelves and set up the Reading Oasis in the school. Open the Reading Oasis with a Celebration event that includes students, parents and recognition of the sponsor to demonstrate the excitement and opportunities that the Reading Oasis and Club Connect will provide!
