Stevi B's Pizza Expands Community Literacy Outreach Initiatives to Support March Literacy Month
Atlanta, GA, March 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Stevi B's Pizza is introducing its Ultimate Reading Challenge bookmark program to libraries and schools nationwide.
Stevi B’s is excited to expand the program which encourages childhood literacy where children are challenged to read 10 books in exchange for a free meal at any of the 47 Stevi B’s Pizza restaurants.
Since the program’s inception in 2011, Stevi B’s has tested the program by partnering with organizations such as the Cobb County Library System in which, Stevi B’s Pizza provided the library system’s summer reading program with 6000 of its Ultimate Reading Challenge bookmarks. Expanding on this initiative, restaurants nationwide will coordinate similar programs with schools and libraries in their communities. The bookmark will also be available on Stevi B’s web site and Facebook page.
“We are very encouraged about the impact that this reading program has had within our communities and will continue to develop tools that our communities can use to compliment the objectives parents and teachers are trying to achieve,” said Matthew Loney, president and CEO of Atlanta-based Stevi B’s Pizza. “It’s an honor to work with local schools and libraries to encourage kids to read and create lifelong good habits.”
Stevi B’s Pizza provides many different partnering opportunities from fundraising for local schools and community events to providing reward incentives for youth achievements. You can find out more about all of the partnering opportunities that Stevi B’s has to offer by contacting your local store or visiting their webpage at www.stevibs.com.
