Wildcats United to host Read-a-Thon event

Verona Area High School’s Wildcats United organization will be hosting its third annual Read-a-Thon from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at the library.

VAHS students will offer free educational activities for children, including readings by local “celebrities,” arts and crafts and a scavenger hunt. The books and activities will focus on climate change.

Wildcats United is a VAHS student-driven charity with a mission to deliver aid to the impoverished citizens of Dane County and to make a difference in the lives of Syrian refugees. It is an outreach organization of the students’ Model United Nations team.
