It so important to #LIVEUNITED as a global community and come together in times of need. Looking for ways to help after the devastating earthquake in Nepal? The New York TimesThe ​ put together a list of resources: http://www.nytimes.com/live/earthquake-katmandu-nepal-updates/how-to-help-the-relief-effort-in-nepal
Updates on the devastation in Nepal, where an earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 7.8 struck on Saturday near its capital, Katmandu, flattening sections of the city and killing thousands.

What's your favorite part about reading?
One St. Martinville Primary student shared hers while our #UWReaders distributed books at the school. We love that she's already practicing her literacy skills! #pacteducation #liveunited

Approximately 1 in 7 people in Acadiana go to bed hungry each night. But YOU can do something about it on May 9.

1 in 7 people in Acadiana wonder where their next meal is coming from.
It might be from your pantry.
Donate extra non-perishable food items during the NALC Food Drive to Stamp Out Hunger on May 9 and help FoodNet feed more neighbors in need.
Spread the word! Together, we can fight ‪#‎foodinsecurity‬. http://action.unitedwayofacadiana.org/page/s/nalc-food-drive
Yes! I want to volunteer for the 2015 NALC Food Drive! On Saturday, May 9, 2015, United Way of Acadiana will join the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) for their annual Food Drive. Volunteers are needed to help collect and sort donated food.

Josiah and his fellow students aren't just leaders at Carencro Heights. They're leaders in their community, too, thanks to The Leader in Me​. He explains how they learned it's just as fun to give as it is to receive. (P.S.: Yes, it was Crazy Hat & Hair Day!) #pacteducation #liveunited

Why did Emily Covington want to help collect 200 books with University of Louisiana at Lafayette​'sThe University of university  Student Leadership Council? Because reading is important to her:

"My mom read to me every night growing up, and as soon as I learned how to read, I spent the majority of my time with my nose in a book. I think it's important for children to develop a love for reading because it broadens their imagination and strengthens their minds. I don't have the research to back it up, but I'm willing to bet that children who spend more time reading do better in school and score higher on standardized tests!"

And UWA was happy to help connect UL's SLC with Alice Boucher Elementary. Thanks to the council and all who donated! #pacteducation   #liveunited
