Women United Preschool Pages is a partnership with Central Elementary, Chastain Road Elementary, and McKissick Elementary to support the development of early literacy skills in infants through 4 year olds in the community. The staff at each of these elementary schools offers regular programming for any young child and their caregiver to attend. Women United can help these programs through providing books or other needed resources as well as volunteering time.
Each of the three sites need board books or hardcover books to use in the program and to give to the children to add to their home library. Books may be purchased through Poor Richard's Booksellers, 107 W. Main Street, Easley, where you will receive a 20% discount when you mention Women United. Poor Richard's will keep a list of the books at the store, and when you purchase from them, you can leave your books at the store for later delivery.
You can also use our Amazon Wishlist to purchase books for Central Elementary Cougar Cub Book Club, Chastain Road Elementary Toddler Rock-n-Read, or McKissick Elementary Tyke Tales, or use the wishlist to identify titles and purchase the books at the store of your choice.
Each site will have a different schedule and different volunteer needs. Please reach out to the contact person listed below to make arrangements to volunteer. You can assist during the program, or help prepare materials ahead of time. You may also need to complete School District of Pickens County volunteer training.
