THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF FORT BEND RECEIVES $16,000 GRANT
FROM THE FORT BEND JUNIOR SERVICE LEAGUE
Sugar Land, Texas (January 7, 2011) – The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County (LCFBC) received a $16,000 grant from the Fort Bend Junior Service League, as a beneficiary of the Sugar Plum Market. The members of FBJSL continue to make our community a better place through their hard work and volunteerism.
The funds awarded in December will enable LCFBC to provide instructional materials, tutor supplies and ongoing tutor support for our adult English as a Second Language and GED students in the Outreach program. Currently the LCFBC holds classes in over 20 sites across Fort Bend County thanks to its many partnerships
The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County is committed to ending inter-generational cycles of illiteracy in our county by improving adult literacy skills and generating community-wide literacy awareness. Formed in 1987, LCFBC is now celebrating our 26th year of helping adults who have made the commitment to change their own lives through literacy. Well-trained and supported volunteers work one-on-one with adults needing to strengthen their basic literacy skills in small groups with those learning to speak English as a second language. LCFBC instruction focuses on inspiring self-motivated adults to continue working to reach their full potential through improved literacy skills.
