Wiss & Co. read to students for national day

March 15, 2011

Eight employees of New Jersey and New York-based Wiss & Company celebrated The National Education Association’s Read Across America Day earlier this month by reading to students of the Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey’s Horizon School (CPNJ).

On March 2, donning red and white hats in honor of the coinciding birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Suess), the volunteers read one-on-one with the some of the approximately 80 students, who are ages 3-13 with multiple disabilities.

The NEA Read Across America Day is an annual celebration taking place on or near the late children’s author’s birthday and encouraging children nationwide to read with a caring adult for 13 years. 

“Read Across America is a great opportunity for Wiss to give back to the community and show children the world of wonder inside books,” said Brian T. Kloza, Wiss’s partner-in-charge of real estate services and a 20-year CPNJ board member, in a statement.

“We were thrilled to participate for the first time and meet these wonderful young people,” said Rob Wright, litigation support manager and the Wiss team’s “volunteer coordinator,” in a statement. “I look forward to doing this again next year.”
