NEWARK, Del. -- The University of Delaware Athletics Department will feature a children’s book drive, culminating with a book drop-off at the beginning of the Blue Hen football home game against Massachusetts tomorrow, Saturday, October 15.
Fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used children books on their way into Delaware Stadium beginning at 1:30 p.m.. There will be drop off stations at both the west side main entrance and the east side main gates. Participants will receive a free game ticket voucher to either a future regular season football game, or a men’s or women’s basketball contest, and a 25% off coupon good for a general reading book at the UD Bookstore, courtesy of Barnes & Noble.
The book drive will help benefit Success Won’t Wait, Inc. of Wilmington, Del.
Success Won’t Wait was founded in 2002, and is a not for profit literacy program. The organization has collected over 250,000 books from over dozens of book drives that have been held throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. From businesses, retail locations, churches, and civic associations, to private and public schools have all been involved.
Success Won’t Wait’s offices and warehouse facility are located at 1729 Marsh Road in North Wilmington. Fans who wish to participate in the program but are unable to attend the football game may make donations at this permanent drop off location.
