In schools across the country, March is a month of celebration. Not only is it Dr. Seuss’ birthday month, but it’s also National Reading Month. Title Source offices wanted to join in on the festivities, so we hosted several children’s book drives last month, which we dubbed “Books for Breakfast.”
Team members didn’t waste any time collecting. In return for a brand new book, they were treated to a free breakfast. These fresh, tasty meals were served up by none other than our own Title Source team leaders!
Texas was the first office to participate, and they started off strong! The line was out the door in the Denton office, which has just under 60 team members. They were able to wrangle up 98 books to be donated to the Wheeler House Library.
Detroit followed up with an assortment of 460 books that were given to some very excited students at Nichols Elementary School as well as the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. A group of team members were able to spend an hour reading with students every Thursday during the entire month.
California didn’t disappoint. The office that has nearly 30 team members was able to donate 86 books to Nuffer Elementary School! That’s almost a whopping three books donated per team member. Way to go Cerritos!
Pennsylvania finished out National Reading Month by donating 134 books to Highland Elementary School. The enthusiastic students even got to spend some time listening to team members who stopped by to read to the class.
This first-time event received a positive response from team members and the recipients of our donated books. By helping support our local libraries and schools, we’ve written another chapter in the story of our community involvement – and this one’s got a very happy ending!
