Darien, CT - The Junior League of Stamford Norwalk’s signature Read 2 Succeed program will continue to grow with help from a $15,000 grant from Entergy Corporation and its Indian Point Entergy Center facility in northern Westchester.

"Entergy has a long history of giving back to the community and investing in organizations that promote literacy. We are proud to continue to support the Junior League of Stamford-Norwalk and Read 2 Succeed," said Mike Twomey, Vice President of External Affairs at Entergy.

Read 2 Succeed is a partnership between JLSN and the Stamford Public Education Foundation (SPEF). Family Literacy Nights were designed to boost school readiness among kindergarteners and first graders in Stamford’s South End who attend Springdale Elementary School.

By bringing parents and teachers together for meaningful activities around literacy, SPEF and JLSN hope to encourage students in Stamford’s South End to read at home.

“We're so happy to receive the continued support of Entergy and reach a greater number of families in Stamford,” JLSN President Char Zoller said. “As our Read 2 Succeed program enters its final year in the Stamford community, we are excited to amplify our impact to make a real difference in our own backyard.”

In addition to building their home libraries, Family Literacy Nights offer parents resources to help their children succeed in school. This includes discussions about navigating the school system, reading a report card, and encouraging reading over the summer.
