The 7-Eleven in Provo, located at 300 S. Freedom Boulevard, is offering free Slurpees when kids read books.
There are many books at that 7-Eleven but they are not for sale. Instead, they are for checking out, just like at the library, and when a child returns it, they receive a Slurpee or a balloon. Thanks to United Way, there are a lot of books there that children can read which has made this all possible!
I am so happy about this! I think with how technology is improving and spreading, there is less time reading an actual book and more time staring at a screen. I admit, I’m guilty of this. I truly hope this new program will spread like wild fire and that everyone in the area will take advantage of this program!
