2010 Success Story – Christine
Christine can’t take her children to the library — four-year-old Christopher’s physical impairments make it impossible. Christine can’t afford to buy books, either. So United Way and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library send books to them. Christine lives below poverty level. She desperately needs the low-income housing funded by United Way, but it’s Imagination Library that she and her kids love. Every month in the mail, Christopher, Chloe, 3, and 800 other preschoolers get a new, free book. Christopher can’t see or walk, but finds comfort in hearing Tiger Can’t Sleep read to him. Chloe adores books and dreams of kindergarten. “Reading to your children is one of the best gifts you can give them,” Christine said.
