Starbucks to collect books in Summit County
SUMMIT COUNTY – Each Summit County Starbucks coffee shop will accept children’s books until April 22 as part of the company’s annual All Books for Children book drive.
Starbucks has locations in Frisco, Breckenridge, Dillon and Keystone.
The Youth Foundation, an organization that provides Colorado families with educational and self-enhancement programs, will distribute the books to local children.
According to Bridget Barrett, regional marketing manager, All Books for Children has given more than 1.5 million books to children in the past six years in an effort to increase literacy.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly 70 percent of fourth-graders nationwide cannot read at a fourth-grade level. Other research indicates that the more types of reading materials there are in a home, the better a child’s reading proficiency becomes.
This year’s goal is to collect and distribute 385,000 books to children throughout the nation. The company hopes to collect 1,000 books in the mountain region this month.
