Updates on TLC’s Programs & Events 


Raising Readers

This past year we were able to expand into three elementary schools: Sechrist, Thomas, and Kinsey, and since the start of the program in September, we have seen significant growth in the reading scores of the students! We will continue this program in January and expand it to include more children.

Volunteer Appreciation

We were finally able to show our appreciation to our wonderful volunteers with a small event at TLC! We celebrated with pizza, cookies, cupcakes, champagne, and soda. We will host another volunteer appreciation event in May 2022. 


Read between the Wines & Donor Appreciation

We were able to host our annual Read between the Wines event at Viola’s Gardens in beautiful fall weather. Many of our donors and supporters were able to join us in drinking wine to support literacy! We will host this event again in October 2022. 



Other Programs 

We have also seen success with our learners in our one-on-one programs as well as those taking our courses. This year, a learner has gotten his license, another has found housing, and another has applied for citizenship! 

Our Storybook Path is also up at Sawmill Park and will be officially unveiled and celebrated in Spring 2022.
