LINDEN – On March 2, volunteers from Infineum USA L.P. joined millions of children, parents, educators and professionals across the nation to celebrate Read Across America day to honor the birthday of the beloved children’s book author, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss,” at several local schools.
The National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America day, falls on or around Dr. Seuss’s birthday. This event, is only a highlight of the year-round literacy project that encourages readers, both young and old, to celebrate reading by getting the word out about the importance of children literacy.
Every year, more than 200 Infineum employees reach out to the community through volunteer work than ranges from sharing the company’s operations and safety programs with the community through plant tours and neighborhood meetings … to helping the needy build affordable homes through Habitat for Humanity.
“Volunteering is the perfect way for our company and our employees to make a lasting difference in the lives of our community, and reading is a great way to engage the minds of young children,” said Liz Garcia, manager of public affairs at Infineum.
