August 12, 2015 – Roth Staffing Companies is proud to launch our YOU SHARE, KIDS READ book drive campaign just in time for Back-To-School. By simply commenting on our Roth Staffing social media post with the name of a favorite children’s book, Roth Staffing Companies will donate that physical book to a literacy program partner for a child in need.
The book drive is part of our 2015 HIGH FIVE goals. Roth Staffing Companies has set forth 5 social responsibility goals in conjunction with its Purpose:full charity initiative. One of those 5 goals is to spearhead national social media campaigns that raise awareness about issues that affect children in the U.S. Literacy is one such issue.
Did you know:
- The single most significant factor influencing a child’s early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school.
