United Supermarkets & Kellogg’s donate 500 books to Storybridge, Inc., help host mobile book fair for students
AMARILLO, Texas — On Thursday, United Supermarkets and Kellogg’s joined forces with Storybridge Inc. to host a mobile book fair for the students at Ridgecrest Elementary School. This book fair follows a donation from United and Kellogg’s of 500 brand-new books to the organization.
Storybridge Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping put books in the hands of children who need them. The book donation from United Supermarkets and Kellogg’s is part of the Feeding Reading program meant to help organizations like Storybridge Inc. close the gap for children who need more access to books.
“United has been a true partner in advancing children’s literacy in our area and we are so thankful to be introduced to the Kellogg’s Feeding Reading program,” said Chandra Perkins, executive director of Storybridge Inc. “This book donation is a high-impact investment in the success of our kids and the flourishing of our communities. We are so proud and grateful to be a part of the difference United and Kellogg’s makes!”
During the book fair, qualifying students were able to shop for up to five free books to take home and keep. With nearly 160 students participating in the fair, hundreds of books will now be headed to homes across the community.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to team up with Kellogg’s once again to make this donation to Storybridge,” said Fernando Noriega, store director for United Supermarkets. “Reading is the cornerstone of education. So, supporting Storybridge’s mission is a great way to support our community’s children. There are few things more important to United Supermarkets than supporting education in our communities.”
