Firm's Third Annual Book Drive Is Expected To Collect Thousands Of Books
Harrisburg, PA – Mette, Evans & Woodside is partnering with RSVP of the Capital Region for their annual children's book collection drive.
Collection of new and gently used books for children ages 4 to 12 will begin on September 10th and continue through October 26th. Collection bins will be available at over 10 locations throughout the area including: Mette, Evans & Woodside, Capital Blue Cross, West Shore YMCA, Dauphin County Bar Association and Quality Cleaners. A complete list of locations is attached or can be found at www.mette.com/childrens-book-drive. The donated books will be distributed at after school tutoring and pre-K programs to children to encourage reading.
"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. Donating books provides an opportunity for a child to grow a love of reading and increasing the likelihood of their success in school and life.
