Since the pandemic began, many adult literacy programs are struggling to connect with offsite learners. Many programs have indicated that while their classroom locations might be physically closed, they are still reaching students through some method(s) of remote learning. However, they are in desperate need of additional funding, staff training on digital learning tools and instructional content that has both print and digital components. All proceeds from this sale will support the Literacy Relief Fund, giving programs the ability to access digital and print learning materials.
Funds raised during the week will also be matched up to $50,000 thanks to the generosity of the Nora Roberts Foundation. Your purchase and support to adult literacy will double!
Snag an autographed book from your favorite author, find a new author or genre to read this fall/winter, or get started on your holiday shopping early! You can help an adult improve their literacy skills to pass their high school equivalency, become a U.S. citizen, or simply help their children with schoolwork.
