One of the programs, the Story Time program, holds significant importance to the Mascot Hall of Fame. This exceptional initiative not only enhances the overall visitor experience but also promotes educational outreach, supports a well-rounded curriculum, engages the community, and has a profoundly positive social impact by fostering essential literacy skills and providing invaluable educational resources.
At the United Way Northwest Indiana, we are dedicated to enhancing our educational reach and bringing stories to life. That’s why we have curated a delightful lineup of some of the most beloved book characters to interact with and entertain children of all ages.
