Actors Danielle Mone’ Truitt and Larry Bates, currently starring in San Diego REPertory Theatre’s production of “The Mountaintop” kicked off United Way’s Virtual Book Drive by reading to children at the St. Vincent de Paul Village Child Development Center. The United Way Book Drive’s goal is to distribute 48,000 bilingual books to low-income children up to age eight and will take donations through its website until March 30, to buy one of five books. Truitt and Bates read “Are You My Mother?” and were joined by Sister Tricia, president and CEO of Father Joe’s Villages, one of the partners who will receive books, and Jon Vance, campaign chair for United Way of San Diego County.
