HEB is celebrating its 5th Anniversary of the Read 3 Program. Since 2011 HEB has committed to help families by providing books to enhance a child’s reading ability. The program encourages families to read with children at least three times a week.
Now HEB is asking for the community’s help to collect one million books.
Yvonne Loflin with HEB Public Affairs says, “Right now we’re asking people to come in and donate a book that’s been friendly-used. And that way we can pass it on to somebody who maybe doesn’t have a book to read.”
HEB will be accepting donated books at all their locations through the month of October.
