"When children develop a passion for reading at a young age, that passion will contribute to their success throughout life," SVdP Retail Operations Director Lorraine Parisi said.

Parisi added that as part of the Society's collective efforts to alleviate poverty, instilling the joy of reading to children can be one of the first steps on the road to a higher education, a good job, and a better opportunity.
