Allentown, PA, (November 2, 2015) – In recognition of Family Literacy Month in November, Vistacom, Inc. announces that it will hold a book drive in support of Lehigh Valley Cops ‘n’ Kids Children Literacy Program. This program pairs children preschool through middle school with new or gently used books that have been donated by individuals and organizations from throughout the Lehigh Valley. In many cases, the books are the first that the children have to keep as their own.
“I think it’s important to make sure that children receive the gift of reading. Books are a way to explore, escape, to empathize, and just to enjoy,” said Angela Nolan, Chief Operating Officer at Vistacom. “Having books, increases the likelihood of their success in school and in life.”
Anyone who would like to participate in the book drive is invited to drop off new or gently used children’s books at Vistacom’s headquarters between normal operating hours, until November 9, 2016.
