CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield Area United Way recently delivered more than 300 books to the Clearfield County Housing Authority.
The books were given thanks to the Reading Ripples program as part of its summer reading initiative.
According to CAUW President Debbie Bowser, almost 6,500 books have been delivered since the program was established.
“We can all remember our favorite childhood books and the way it could fire our imagination,” she said.
Bowser added, “Reading aloud is the single most important thing you can do to help prepare a child for reading and learning.
“This is just one more way to get books into the hands of children and to inspire a love of reading.”
The CAUW collects new and gently-used books for its Reading Ripples program. Books are then processed and redistributed throughout the community.
Any individual or group can hold a book collection. For more information, please contact the CAUW.
