Book Donation Benefits Children

ELMIRA, NY - Fidelis Care Provider Relations Representative Nicole Weltzer (left) and Outreach Specialist Joe Bassage (right) donate books to BJ Butler, Southern Tier Pediatrics Administrator, for the practice's Bright Red Bookshelf.

Sponsored by the Family Reading Partnership of Chemung Valley to expose children to books and encourage a passion for reading. Any child in the community is welcome to take a book. Weltzer and Bassage noticed the Bright Red Bookshelf at a previous visit to Southern Tier Pediatrics and organized an employee book drive at Fidelis Care's Rochester office to help the cause. Southern Tier Pediatrics accepts donations of gently used books at all three locations.
