30 Jan Team Criterion Las Vegas Holds Book Drive
Over the holidays, Criterion supported the Spread the Word book drive in Las Vegas for the second year in a row. It was organized as a friendly competition between different teams, and the Network Operations Center (NOC) team won a pizza party for bringing in the most books.
Spread the Word Nevada is a children’s literacy nonprofit, dedicated to advancing early childhood literacy by placing books into the hands and homes of children within Nevada’s at-risk, low income communities. While developing a love of reading, these libraries promote future academic achievement and self-confidence, which impacts lifelong success.
Since 2001, Spread the Word Nevada has distributed more than 5 million gently used and new books to more than 554,000 low-income youth in Nevada.
