Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a United Way Day of Action event at the Boys and Girls Club branch in Sanford, where we met up with Dana Taylor, co-host of  MIX 105.1’s popular morning show.

Dana first met with a group of 12-to 18-year-olds who were full of questions about how she began her career and became a successful radio personality.

A true pro, Dana encouraged the kids to read more, find out what it is they love to do, and then the set educational goals to achieve their dreams.   

In keeping with the event’s focus on improving children’s reading skills, she also spent time reading her favorite children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, to a group of six- to nine-year-olds.

Day of Action, which takes place on June 21, is supported by United Ways across the country. This year’s event marked the start of a three-year goal to recruit one million volunteers to readers, tutors and mentors to help kids across America succeed in school and beyond.

To meet Heart of Florida United Way’s goal of recruiting 3,000 local volunteers, we need you to LIVE UNITED and join us in becoming part of the solution. Click here to take the pledge and learn how you can make a difference in our community.
