United Way of Cullman County Education Initiatives & Partners
United Way of Cullman County Stuff the Bus
United Way of Cullman County holds an annual school supply drive each year in July to ensure all students can start school with access to school supplies at no cost if needed. These supplies are stored at the City & County schools throughout the school year for students who need them.
United Way of Cullman County Little Free Library
United Way of Cullman County is the site of a Little Free Library, which is located on the front of our property, right beside Depot Park. The library gets tons of traffic from all the special events in the area. You can take a book & leave a book at the Little Free Library.
United Way of Cullman County Book Drive
United Way of Cullman County held its first book drive in May 2023 and it was an overwhelming success. We are asking for new or gently used children's books, to encourage reading during the summer. Books are distributed throughout various needed sites and partner agencies during summer programs.
United Way of Cullman County Education Task Force
United Way of Cullman County holds a monthly task force round table meeting for non-profits working in improving the lives of students and educational opportunities for those in Cullman County. The task force aims to get all our education agencies working towards reaching the same goals to move students in Cullman County forward.
United Way of Cullman County partners with the 4-H Club of Cullman, hosted by the Cullman County Extension Office. 4-H visits 4th grade students across Cullman County in almost every city and county school, as well as offers clubs in the areas of STEM, robotics, agriculture, and other areas to students of all ages.
Dolly Parton Imagination Library
United Way of Cullman County partners with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program hosted through the Cullman County Friends of the Library. The program ensures children 5 & under have books delivered to their homes monthly- free of charge- starting at birth. The program is a great way to ensure all our children in Cullman County have access to books!
