Injury Attorney Kenneth J. Allen of Allen Law Group has again stepped up to support United Way of Northwest Indiana’s Reading Buddies program, donating more than $22,000 to program logistics and thousands in marketing promotions.
The Reading Buddies program is a classroom motivation tool to encourage young students to practice their reading skills. This year, stuffed animals were provided to more than 3,700 first and second graders.
“Literacy is a keystone of success. So it makes good sense to help our children learn to read and write with confidence at the earliest possible age,” said Injury Attorney Allen. “Reading Buddies is just one of the many ways United Way of Northwest Indiana helps our kids grow up strong, healthy and successful. I am proud to continue supporting the program and the community as we have for many years now.”
Reading Buddies were distributed to Lake and Porter counties’ schools. Allen helped deliver buddies to second-grade students at Yost Elementary in Porter and Homer Iddings Elementary in Merrillville. For more information about United Way’s programs, visit unitedwaynwi.org.
