Read Across America Day and Books in a Bag
In honor of Theodore “Dr. Seuss” Geisel’s March birthday, employee volunteers from Community Bank of Bergen County, Five Star Premier Residences of Teaneck, Henderson Associates, State Farm, Sigma Group of Oradell, TD Bank ,and the Volunteer Center of Bergen County donned red and white striped “Cat in the Hat” headgear and read to hundreds of children at the YMCA in Hackensack, Quarles School in Englewood and the Muscarelle Center in Garfield. Employees from BD donated over 100 books and read to the students at Children’s Aid and Family Services in Paramus. The Read Cross American Day celebration kicks off the BVC’s annual Books in a Bag program to promote early literacy.
Books in a Bag is a campaign to collect new children’s books for pre-school and kindergarten students from low-income families. As families struggle to pay for rent, utilities, and food, books are far down on the list of must-have items. The BVC is currently collecting NEW children’s books and invites all interested companies to get their employees involved in this exciting outreach effort.
