Florida Power and Light (FPL) has teamed up with Anna Maria Oyster Bar’s "Dive Into Reading" program to help hundreds of local students prevent the “Summer Slide.” The annual literacy program, which kicked off earlier this month, works with students from local Title I schools to increase children’s literacy levels during summer break while enjoying a hot breakfast. FPL helped fund more than 2,500 books to be distributed to more than 550 rising second- and third-grade students from all 15 Title I schools in Manatee and Desoto counties.
