New York Schools and Nonprofits Received More Than 10,700 Books Through Verizon's Season's Readings Campaign
Date:2/1/2010

nt for the New York region.  "I am tremendously proud of the efforts of our employees, our partners and everyone who participated in the Season's Readings campaign to help get books into the hands of children and help them become lifelong learners."

Season's Readings began in 2001 as a Verizon employees' campaign to advance the cause of children's literacy.  Since then, more than 2 million children's books have been donated to children across the country.

"We applaud the employees of Verizon for their commitment to literacy," said Kyle Zimmer, First Book president and CEO.  "Thanks to their generous support, First Book is bringing close to 33,000 new books to children and families who need them most.  Together, Verizon and First Book are helping children in need open the doors to exploration, adventure and learning through new books." 

The Verizon Foundation, supports the advancement of literacy and K-12 education through its free educational Web site, Thinkfinity.org, and fosters awareness and prevention of domestic violence.  In 2009, the Verizon Foundation awarded more than $67.5 million in grants to nonprofit agencies in the U.S. and abroad.  It also matched the charitable donations of Verizon employees and retirees, resulting in an additional $26.1 million in combined contributions to nonprofits.  Through Verizon Volunteers, one of the nation's largest employee volunteer programs, Verizon employees and retirees have volunteered more than 5 million hours of community service since 2000.
