Date:2/1/2010

NEW YORK, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Schools and nonprofit organizations throughout New York received more than 10,700 free children's books through the Verizon Foundation's recent Season's Readings campaign.

Each year, Verizon employees at hundreds of company locations, including 47 in New York, participate in the Season's Readings campaign by donating new or gently used children's books.

This past year, the public was invited to take part in the campaign by making an online donation to First Book, a nonprofit organization providing new books to children in need  through  schools, libraries and other community organizations across the country.  Random House Children's Books also participated by matching contributions made online, adding more than 15,000 books to the campaign total.

Among the organizations receiving books in New York are:

  • The New York-Presbyterian Hospital Pediatrics Outreach Program
  • The Police Athletic League, Albany
  • The Holy Angels Region School, Patchogue, L.I.
  • The Chestnut Hill Elementary and Middle Schools, Liverpool
  • Children of Promise, Brooklyn
  • The YWCA, North Tonawanda
  • The Glenn E. Hines Memorial Boys and Girls Club of Newburgh

"Studies have shown that one of the most successful methods to improve reading achievement is to ensure that children have easy access to age-appropriate reading material," said Andres Irlando, Verizon preside
