ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Any non-cashed out vouchers at Rockford’s casino could go towards increasing the literacy rate in Winnebago County.

Any guest can donate their non-cashed out vouches to the United Way of Rock River Valley this December. There is a box near the front door to leave the print outs.

United Way said that literacy rates took a big hit during COVID-19. They are currently working with other local organizations and school districts to come up with a solution.

They said that these donations will further their efforts.
