FPU Helps Buy Books For Riverside Elementary
March 8, 2013—One Riverside Elementary student named Florida Public Utilities a ‘hero’ after the Company contributed numerous dollars to the school’s ‘Pennies For Pages’ event. The month-long ‘book-a-thon’ began on March 4th, when each class received a money jar. Students were then invited to bring pennies to put in the jar—as well as any other type of change and bills—with all proceeds going toward buying new books for the school’s media center. In addition to promoting the love of reading school-wide, the class that earned the largest donation was awarded with a special treat and additional outdoor recess.
