Randall Reed’s Planet Lincoln in Spring is proud to announce their new Lincoln Literacy Corner. The Houston-area dealership partnered with Children’s Books On Wheels, a non-profit mobile organization dedicated to promoting literacy for school-age children.
Together, Planet Lincoln and Children’s Books On Wheels had a ribbon cutting Saturday, August 17th, celebrating the new reading area and sponsorship of Seed To Read, an after-school program which provides educational support through mentoring and tutoring to school-age children from Pre-K to 12th grade in underdeveloped rural communities.
“This is a wonderful event celebrating a great program that does so much the kids in our community,” said Randall Reed, owner of Planet Lincoln. “We are thankful to be able to partner with and help this organization promote literacy and fun reading programs for our children.”
The Lincoln Literary Corner is inside the Planet Lincoln dealership, located at 20440 I-45 North, Spring, Texas 77373. During the ribbon-cutting event, children, families and Planet Lincoln guest enjoyed refreshments from Chick-fil-A as part of our “Lemonade For Literacy.” Children visited with the Spring Fire Department and free books were available for children of all ages.
“This is a joint effort that allows us to be a community resource for books at no cost to children who otherwise would not have access to books and learning materials in our surrounding areas,” John Dvorak, General Manager at Planet Lincoln.
“This is the beginning of our long tale of ongoing literacy events at Planet Lincoln,” said Alexa Horak, Planet Lincoln’s Community Relations Director. On September 28, there will be a Teddy Bear Tea. The community is also invited to join us on October 26for a Breast Cancer Awareness Balloon Release event at Planet Lincoln.
“We look forward to these events that are vital resources to the community,” said Rita Wiltz, the Executive Director and Founder of Children’s Books On Wheels.
