Nissan North America has extended its commitment to early childhood literacy in Middle Tennessee by granting US$ 100,000 to Governor's Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF). Joined by First Lady Crissy Haslam, Nissan presented the check to GBBF President Theresa Carl during a reading event at Casa Azafrán Early Learning Center in Nashville, Tennessee, in celebration of Tennessee's Imagination Library Week and Nissan's ongoing support of the Foundation.

The donated funds will be used to provide age-appropriate books each month to preschool children who are enrolled in Dolly Parton's Imagination Library programs in Davidson, Franklin, Rutherford and Williamson counties — the four counties where Nissan has operational facilities in the state.

"Nissan sponsors many educational programs to help children and youth learn and grow," said Rebecca Vest, Nissan Vice-President of Corporate Development and Social Responsibility. "There is no better way to nurture opportunity in the communities where we live and work than to promote literacy and a desire to learn among children from an early age. We are proud to partner with Governor's Books from Birth Foundation and Tennessee's Imagination Library."

President of GBBF Theresa Carl added, "We know that early learning and reading skills are absolutely critical for a child's success in life. Our continued partnership with Nissan through the years has made a significant impact on enrollment growth and on the lives of the thousands of children served by this program."
