In keeping with the theme of education, Phoenix Plaza will also be hosting a story book collection drive. As parents and caregivers, we all dream of success for our children- and storytelling and reading provides one of the ways to help fulfil these dreams. Reading has an impact on children because it opens up new sources of information, new activities and helps with the development of writing skills.

Shoppers who are willing to donate are encouraged to drop off new or old story books to the marketing office. Once collected these books will be distributed to underprivileged schools in the Phoenix community by enhancing their library.
