Champions of Childhood Literacy award winners, Don & Hanna Witherspoon. The Witherspoons have been involved with United Way for more than 30 years in multiple states where they've lived. Don currently serves on the United Way board of directors and Hanna has served on the board in the past. They've given time, treasures and talents to United Way for many years, but their passion project has recently become Books from Birth. “Books in the hands of kids is good for everyone,” Don said, when asked why they support this program. “Reading is the foundation for a successful life. It has the ability to lift people up from birth to a bright future. And Books from Birth makes that happen.”
