Bridgeport Literacy Initiative Soars into 3rd Year

A giant thank you to the Xerox Corporation and the Pitney Bowes Corporation, and it’s Pitney Bowes Employee Involvement Fund, for making the 3rd year of Reader To Reader's Bridgeport Literacy Initiative possible.

The Bridgeport Literacy Initiative brings much-needed books to low-income children attending schools in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Denise L. Jones, Library Media Specialist at Bridgeport’s Longfellow School marveled at the first delivery of the new year.

“The books on community and careers were snatched up by the third grade teachers who were planning a project and needed books on careers written on the grade level of their students. These books came at the right time and were a perfect addition to the collection that I have in the library. Much thanks again to Reader to Reader for continuing to support Longfellow School and our efforts to improve literacy.”
