Throughout January, customers at the Wow!Zone can round up their bill to help provide books to area children through United Way’s Books for Kids program.


The Wow!Zone is hosting Greater Mankato Area United Way’s “Round Up for Reading” initiative to benefit the United Way Books for Kids program, which provides nearly 30,000 books, donated by Capstone, to children throughout the region annually.


All month long, customers can round up their Wow!Zone bill to the nearest dollar or may choose to donate additional funds to assist in sending books to area children.


Greater Mankato Area United Way mails Capstone books to children ages 0 through 4 years old in Blue Earth, Le Sueur, Nicollet and Waseca counties six times a year. United Way also provides free books at various outreach events throughout the year.
