Nestlé, a long-time supporter of RIF, has provided consistent funding to provide RIF service to than 27,000 children in 19 states. In 2010, RIF honored Nestlé’s commitment to children’s literacy and RIF at the Gift of Reading Gala, presenting them with the Legacy of Literacy Award.
Also in 2010, Nestlé expanded their support of RIF through the launch of the “Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading” program. This program encourages individuals to enter a promotion code found on specially marked bags of Nestlé candy online at www.celebrationcorner.com/rif for an entry into a monthly $5,000 drawing. For every code entered, Nestlé will donate $.10 to RIF, and for every instant winner, the company will donate $2 to RIF, with a minimum donation of $100,000.
Nestlé USA continues to be a key partner as RIF works to help children across the nation discover the joy of reading.
