Consider a Donation to Change a Life – easy as ABC…

The gift of literacyDear Friends of LVA,

Did you grow up with books in your home, was there someone you can remember who read to you, were books a wonderful place for you to go – to learn, to dream or to just have fun? For many of our learners, books were not a source of fun and comfort, but a challenge and a barrier. At Literacy Volunteers, we have been able – with your help – to change that and engage many in the wonderful world of reading.

When adults learn to read and write, they have the power to transform their lives.

Why Literacy? Why not support world health? Or poverty relief? Or children’s education?

The answer is clear.

To solve these problems, we must start by building a more literate adult population. When individuals learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they impact an entire family and are more likely to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to improved health care costs, and find and keep sustainable employment

Your gift to LVA could…

  • $25.00 – provides basic learning supplies
  • $40.00 – purchase books and supplies to hold a family literacy event
  • $50.00 – cover the cost of training one volunteer so no waiting students.
  • $100.00 – supports LVA’s outreach campaign to reach more volunteers and learners.
