Letter to the Editor: Sussex Read Aloud grateful for fundraising events


The staff, Sussex County Committee members and volunteers of Read Aloud Delaware would like to thank the area restaurants who provided us with fundraising opportunities over the past few months by hosting Dine to Donate events.

Many thanks to Neilia Dolan at Crust & Craft Wood Fired Pizza for her help in organizing the October event and to Susan Allen for facilitating the December event at Fins.

A heartfelt thanks, also, to Kelly Small at Nicola Pizza for planning the most recent Dine to Donate event there.

We would like to recognize the efforts of Read Aloud Delaware board of directors member Betsy Plowman for her assistance in fostering Read Aloud Delaware’s partnership with these local restaurants.

The monies raised by these events will help to support the mission of Read Aloud Delaware to create a lifelong impact through early childhood literacy. The vision is that children across Delaware will have the fundamental literacy skills to succeed in school and life. Both our LENA Start and Volunteer Reading programs are aimed at fulfilling that goal.
