Volunteer Florida and ADT #BringABook Project a Success

Volunteer Florida and ADT announced at a book distribution event today that the month-long #BringABook service project collected 10,000 books for Florida students. The event, which was co-hosted by ADT and Volunteer Florida, was held in conjunction with Florida Volunteer Month and the ADT Always Cares Annual Week of Service. The Volunteer Florida and ADT #BringABook project collected over 10,000 books total!

Throughout April, ADT employees collected new and gently-used elementary school books from employees at 18 ADT offices across the state. The books will be donated to recipient organizations in each region – remaining in communities where ADT employees live and work. In South Florida, the recipient organization is the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. A Volunteer Florida grantee, the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County will deploy its 40 AmeriCorps members to mentor and tutor students over the summer months using some of the books collected during #BringABook.
