Eve and Eli on the paper route in East Falls

Tag along as NewsWorks goes on a paper delivery route in East Falls with two neighborhood kids. 

With the majority of news consumed online these days, it’s comforting to know there are still a number of neighborhood kids getting paid to deliver the local newspapers.

11-year-old Eve Moulton of East Falls is one of them. She’s been delivering the East Falls monthly paper, The Fallser, for the past two years. It’s something she’s very passionate about, she even recruited her 4-year-old brother to help out.

Once a month, you can see these two scrambling through Midvale Avenue by foot or on the back of their dad’s multiple passenger bicycle to drop the papers on porches and doorsteps throughout the neighborhood.

Eve, a seasoned pro, is quick to share all of the newspaper delivery tips she has acquired throughout the years. For starters, you should always keep hands away from holes in screens where dogs could be lurking. Secondly, always throw papers in a spot where there is overhead coverage, no one likes a soggy paper.

Eve and Eli’s dad, Michael Moulton, travels along with the kids on all routes. He uses the opportunity as a learning experience to teach the kids about saving money and what it means to have a boss.
