July 2024 Newsletter

Dear Literacy Advocate,

 

As we step into July 2024, I am proud of the incredible progress we've made together. Our recent efforts have shown the power of community support, helping us provide more books to children in need.

 

We've secured valuable grants and donations, allowing us the opportunity to expand our reach and impact. Partnerships with local organizations have been crucial in delivering supplies and literacy materials to those affected by crises.

 

Thank you for your ongoing support and for helping us make a difference, one book at a time.

 

Happy Reading,


Sylvia Maser
