“Day of Action” in Broome County involves plenty of time sitting to enjoy a good read.

The United Way of Broome County is celebrating by promoting summer reading.

Donations of new books are being gathered for children from kindergarten through fifth grade.

Book donations can be dropped off through June 30th at the United Way of Broome County on Jensen Road, Vestal, Jack Sherman Toyota on Court Street, Binghamton, Serafini Nissan/Volvo on the Vestal Parkway East, the GHS Federal Credit Union main office on Front Street, Binghamton and the Olum’s location at the Campus Plaza in Vestal on the Vestal Parkway East.

All books will be donated to children participating in summer programs throughout Broome County.  The Binghamton Rumble Ponies will be packing and distributing the books.
