Collette Celebrates Year-long Partnership with Books are Wings

As Collette’s Charity of the Year in 2016, Books are Wings was the recipient of Collette volunteers, donations and support.  Collette employees gave 3,300 books to 1,600 children in Pawtucket schools; collected 1,600 books through a company-wide book drive; dedicated their Founder’s Day Volunteer Week to giving 200 books to 100 children who needed them at Slater Park; raised over $3,000 for Books are Wings through dress down days; and created literacy kits with the support of United Way.  Collette’s Marketing department also assisted on the development of Books are Wings YouTube videos to encourage kids and parents to enjoy their favorite stories together from home.
