Today, Success Won’t Wait donated over 500 books to the Phoenixville Read-Aloud Program. Our total number of books donated to the program now surpasses 2,000 books!
The Phoenixville Read-Aloud program is the brainchild of Larry Jilk and was originally designed to reach at-risk pre-K children, while providing literary-rich environments at participating centers throughout the Phoenixville area.
Today’s donation will be used for a free book giveaway event sponsored by the Phoenixville Read-Aloud Program. The goal in 2014 is to expand the reach of the program and provide books to children through 8th grade, who might not otherwise have books in the home.
Pictured is Larry Jilk, founder of the Phoenixville Read-Aloud Program, with just a few of the 500+ children’s books donated today.
