Operation Sweet Reads Truck Unveiling
June 21, 2018
Benton Convention Center

City residents and their children were invited to join the celebration when the Winston-Salem Police Foundation and the Winston-Salem Police Department unveiled the department's "Operation Sweet Reads" community outreach vehicle.

The Sweet Reads truck, which the foundation is donating to the Police Department, will go through neighborhoods in Winston-Salem to engage local children with ice cream and books, helping build relationships between children and local officers while at the same time promoting literacy and education.

Chief Catrina Thompson demonstrated how the truck will operate by reading to children from the Ken Carlson Boys and Girls Club.
