Ford: Driving Dreams Tour

August 10, 2016 2:23 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

On August 9, 2016 Ford Motor Company along with First Book Organization had a reading party at the BB&T Center located in Sunrise, FL. It was an incredible event where children from CNC Early Childcare Center and Treasure Island received the opportunity to tour the hockey stadium and receive a free gift which included a backpack and a book. The children enjoyed the day reading with volunteer readers and spent the day filled with fun activities. Our own, Sonia Lopez-President and CEO, was a volunteer where she read the book “I’m Cool” to a group of children.

In the U.S. no matter how formats and technologies change, children from low-income families will still need access to rich and varied content. 1 book is given to 300 children. This was a wonderful experience for them to have, it shows them the meaning of what reading is and gave them a chance to receive a book of their own.
