Dependable Cleaners is pleased to announce its annual Read to Ride program will begin on Monday, May 12. The program is designed to encourage student to keep up with their reading during the summer months. Students from ages 6-15 will have the chance to win a bike or an exciting prize for every book they read. Since the program’s inception in 1999, more than 66,000 books have been read!
“We created the Read to Ride program 16 years ago to make sure children continue to read outside of school throughout the summer months, said Christa Hagearty, president of Dependable Cleaners. “The program could not be possible without our partners – Country Ski & Sport, Farina’s Bike Shop and The Patriot Ledger – as well as local schools, organizations, libraries and stores. I also want to thank the parents who have instilled the importance of reading to their children during the summer months.”
Participation in Read to Ride is easy. For every book a child reads, they fill out an entry form and submit it at any of the 16 Dependable Cleaner locations or with Dependable Cleaners’ Home Delivery Drivers. Entry forms are available at all Dependable Cleaners locations, delivery routes, Country Ski & Sport locations, Farina’s Bike Store in Watertown, local libraries, bookstores and online at DependableCleaners.com/Read-Ride.
One grand prize winner will be drawn each Monday beginning June 2 until August 11, 2014 (except for July 7). The grand prize winners will receive a new bike and helmet. Two additional winners will receive runner up prizes each week. A full list of Read to Ride partners, terms and conditions, and a printable entry form are accessible at www.DependableCleaners.com/Read-Ride.
Read to Ride 2014 is sponsored by Dependable Cleaners in conjunction with Country Ski & Sport, Farina’s Bike Store in Watertown and The Patriot Ledger.
