    EMERGE Lakeland is partnering with one of its founding agencies, United Way of Central Florida for the Day of Caring. Join us at 7:30 a.m. for coffee, juice, breakfast snacks, and conversation. You'll receive your volunteer t-shirt and after a brief program (15 mins) we'll head over to United Way's offices, 5605 US Highway 98, Lakeland 33812 to pack bags with books for the children who benefit from the ReadingPals program. Please note this service project is limited to 10 volunteers, so RSVP today! (PLEASE NOTE UPDATED TIME IS 7:30 AM!)

    The ReadingPals early literacy initiative helps students establish a foundation for reading by improving vocabulary, listening skills, comprehension, and visual and auditory memory.

    This event not only offers the opportunity to give back to the community, but the service organizer said the Women’s Leadership Council will be at this project, too so there will be opportunities to network with these influential women.
