There’s nothing like sitting in the comfort ofbryour home with a child in your lap and reading a good book together.

brbr

Whether it is a hot summer day with the airbrconditioning keeping you cooled down while you enjoy some relaxing indoor time,bror during a wintry cold night, in a warm snuggly room with a cup of hot cocoabrnearby, these are the times you hold onto for years to come.

Lorene and RobertbrMoore of Nebo Comfort Systems knowbrall-too-well that it’s the small comforts like reading a book at home with yourbrchild that make all the difference. This is why the two have started a programbrcalled Nebo Reads, where employees read to students and donate books.

“Nebo Reads is a program where every month ourbremployees read to students and donate a copy of the books we read for each ofbrthem to take home,” Lorene Moore said.

brbr

“We usually donate around a thousand books abryear. Teachers and families have often told us that for some students, thesebrare the only books they have at home. One mom shared that her daughter has allbrthe books we’ve given her over the years together in her special library.

brbr

“The older kids are getting into chapter books,brso we read a chapter and then tell them they have to finish it to find out whatbrhappens. The next month when we’re there, the students can hardly wait to tellbrus what happened in the book. They want us to know they read it. That means sobrmuch to us. We want to have that kind of impact in the lives of these kids.”

brbr

The Moore’s began this program after Robert Moorebrgot involved in the Kiwanis, which is similar to the United Way, where he wentbrinto the Head Start classroom twice a year to read and donate books.

brbr

Eventually, the Moore’s started purchasing directlybrfrom Scholastic Books in bulk by using its points program. Lorene Moore said itbrcosts about $100 per month for them to go to a school and read and donate booksbrto two grade levels. She says that it’s an inexpensive way to have a hugebrimpact in the lives of students, with the rewards for her and her employeesbrbeing even greater.

brbr

Nebo Comfort Systems has served in several otherbrways in the community, including raising money and holding events for ThebrAmerican Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, CHOICE Humanitarian, Kiwanis, ALS,brthe Bennion Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, Mountain View Hospital,brTabitha’s Way and many more. The Moore’s say that it has been a core standardbrfor the company since they began.

brbr

“Giving back has been an important part of ourbrfamily business since we started it,” Lorene Moore said. “Robert and I havebralways loved being involved in the community. When we started Nebo Comfort, webralso started Nebo Cares, our company’s charitable program, to be able tobrleverage the visibility our company gave us to be able to make a difference forbrgood in our community and in the world. The Nebo Reads program is part of ourbrcore belief in giving back to the community that has given us so much.”

brbrServe Daily thanks Nebo Comfort Systems for its continuedbrservice in our community, and congratulates the company for earing this month’sbrtitle of “Server of the Month.” (Brownbris a Serve Daily contributor.)
