Mission Fed Book Drive
In San Diego County, 38 percent of third graders are not reading up to their grade level. That's why 10News is partnering with Mission Federal Credit Union to help children get excited about reading.
The Read to Succeed Book Drive will get much needed books into the hands of the kids who need them.
Through United Way, the books will be distributed to health and human service agencies, libraries, schools and youth service organizations for low-income and disadvantaged children throughout the county.
