Idaho Power Donates 1,500 Books to United We Read

Idaho Power employees across the Treasure Valley recently donated over 1,500 new and gently used children’s books to the United Way of Treasure Valley’s United We Read campaign.

The annual book drive for local children from low-income families aims to prevent “summer slide,” or summer-related learning loss, which has been compounded by the challenges of the previous school year.

“I love that the United Way took on the challenge to help little learners who may have fallen behind in their reading skills during the pandemic,” said Idaho Power Vice President of Corporate Services and Communications Debra Leithauser. “This year, Idaho Power employees donated their books, their time, and their skills to ensure our youngest community members have the resources they need to be successful in the school year ahead.”
