SoDel Cares, a nonprofit foundation, recently donated $2,500 to Read Aloud Delaware, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to promoting reading in Delaware.

"Reading is so important when it comes to early childhood education," said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, which started SoDel Cares in 2015 to benefit residents, particularly children, in the community.

"Read Aloud helps children develop that love of reading," Kammerer said. "The organization also encourages parents to read to their children so that the kids are better prepared to succeed in school and in life."

Read Aloud Delaware's 250 volunteers read in more than 41 centers, including Head Start locations, child care centers and elementary schools. In 2016, more than 2,500 children benefited from more than 3,200 reading sessions.

SoDel Cares asked Read Aloud to find donors who would match the $2,500. The nonprofit received matches from the Village Improvement Association and from a fundraiser.

SoDel Cares will hold its third annual fundraiser  Friday, Nov. 17, at Fish On in Lewes. The evening will feature silent and live auctions. A $25 donation is suggested. For information, see SoDel Concepts' event calendar at www.sodelconcepts.com.
