Support Dolly Parton's Imagination Library on FLXGives Day

A blue heart with "FLX Gives" written underneath

Nov. 1, 2021:

You can spark the joy of learning and instill a lifelong love of literacy in children in Chemung and Steuben counties by supporting Dolly Parton's Imagination Library during the 24-hour FLXGives online giving event.

Donations can be made on FLXGives from 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, through 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a free book gifting program for all children under the age of 5 in Chemung and Steuben counties. Each child in the program receives a free, age-appropriate book by mail. 

Donations to United Way of the Southern Tier pay for the program; it costs about $30 for a child to receive 12 books each year. Donations of all amounts are welcome.

This year United Way of the Southern Tier's Board of Directors will match the first $500 in donations made as part of FLXGives.

You can also support this fundraiser by spreading the word about FLXGives and by becoming a fundraising champion. Click on the blue “fundraise” button at this link.
