Read Aloud Delaware Community Service Day

Volunteers will gather on for Saturday April 27 from 9 – 1 AM to clean donated children’s books for Read Aloud Delaware. 

The community service event will be held in the Village of Five Points Community Center.Read Aloud Delaware’s mission is to ensure that each preschool child, 2 to 5 years of age, will be ready to learn to read when they enter kindergarten. In addition to reading one-on-one to children in child care centers, preschools, and some elementary schools, the program stocks Literacy Corners with children’s books in State Service Center waiting rooms throughout the county so that parents can read to their children while waiting-and the child can take a book home upon leaving. Stacy Penaranda, coordinator of the Read Aloud Delaware for Sussex County says, “Reading to children sets them on the road to literacy and a better life status. Children who are read to are: less likely to drop out of school; more likely to be employed as adults; and less likely to depend on public assistance. “

Boxes of books have been donated for the community service day. Volunteers will wipe the books with sanitizing cloths, erase marks inside the books or cover them with stickers and place a Read Aloud Delaware sticker on the book. 

Read Aloud’s Mother Goose who educates and entertains children in classrooms throughout the county will make an appearance at the booking cleaning.

This is the second of four community service workshops hosted this year by the Villages of Five Points in their Community Center.  “Welcoming Read Aloud Delaware to the Villages of Five Points is the “heart” of our vision to create spirit-enhancing programs for our residents and the community at large,” says Recreation Board Liaison Brenda Stover.
