If you haven’t already enjoyed our tribute to you earlier this year for Volunteer Appreciation Week in April, please enjoy this special tribute and videos!

In April we highlighted three characteristics that stand out among so many others … your compassion, your perseverance, and your generosity of spirit. We hope you enjoy our special tribute to YOU, our Literacy Council superheroes, who Lift Lives through Literacy, every day.  To view all the videos together, go to our post: Volunteer Appreciation Week

Thank you for your compassion, dedication and service to our students

and their families through your work as a Literacy Council volunteer. 

You are our superheroes and YOU are helping Literacy Lift Lives.
