Book drive under way
Plymouth Community United Way and Chuck E. Cheese will hold a month-long drive for new children’s book at the restaurant in Canton. The event runs through March 31.
March is Reading Month and Plymouth Community United Way is collecting books in an effort to get children to read this summer to prevent the ‘summer slide.’ Studies show that children, especially those from low-income families, lose up to two months of reading skills over the break.
Customers will receive 20 tickets for each new children’s book that is brought into Chuck E. Cheese, the drop off site for the drive at 42001 Ford Road. Tickets can be used toward the purchase of prizes.
All of the new children’s books will go to children in the community.
