NBCRightNow.com - Children in the Tri-Cities will now have an easier access to books.

Sun Pacific Energy has donated a van to the Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia. The van will help get books to children in areas that have little to no access to books.

"This past fall, we used the van to deliver more than 4,500 books to brand new teachers in more than 18 different elementary schools in the area, said Amy Ward, the executive director of the reading foundation.

The mission of the reading foundation is to encourage and educate families and caregivers about their important role in raising a reader, support schools in assuring that students read on grade level by the end of third grade, and facilitate community involvement in helping young readers be successful.
