Literacy is life-changing. Literacy gives pride to the grandmother working toward her GED. It gives hope to the father who can finally help his children with their homework. Literacy gives joy to the third-grader who can now read at grade level. These are just a few examples of how your tax-deductible gift will make a difference:
