The Livonia branch is just one of the many Community Bank N.A. branches across New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Massachusetts who took part in this initiative. Across the bank’s footprint, nineteen branches visited local schools, daycares and libraries to read to children in their communities.
“Our branch team was thrilled to participate in National Reading Month and celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by reading to our local children,” Community Bank N.A. Livonia Branch Manager Ronda Howard said. “We understand the impact reading can have on young children and were happy to take the time to support this initiative. We’re delighted that our employees had the opportunity to be guest readers for so many children.”
National Reading Month was founded to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the favorite author of millions of children. Its mission is to help kids and teens improve their reading skills and motivate Americans of all ages to read every day. Each year schools, libraries and educational institutions across the United States participate in the event to support this cause.
