Mette, Evans & Woodside is partnering with the Retired Senior Veterans of Pennsylvania (RSVP) for a children's book collection drive.
Collection of gently used and new books for children ages 4 to 12 will begin on October 3rd and continues through November 11th. Collection bins will be available at multiple businesses throughout Dauphin and Cumberland counties. The donated books will be distributed at after school tutoring and pre-K programs to children to encourage reading. The full list of donation sites and information on making a financial contribution are available at www.mette.com.
"Children who read at home and have access to books are more likely to do well in school. This book drive will help get more books into the hands of the children in our community," said Kathi Simpson, attorney with Mette, Evans & Woodside.
According to the Literacy Project Foundation, 6 out of 10 households do not buy a single book in a year. By donating books, you are providing an opportunity for a child to grow a love of reading and increasing the likelihood of their success in school and life.
