Thank you for your support of Family Literacy!

Give to the Max Day 2016 was successful thanks to the generosity of several donors. We are happy to report that we easily met a $500 matching gift that was given in memory of Staff Sergeant Adam Thomas. Several donors gave in memory of Adam on #GTMD16 and in the days that followed. We raised nearly $1,800, which is a great start to our $30,000 Families Learning Family Literacy Campaign. These funds will allow us to add one or more family literacy classes in 2017 with an early childhood and adult education teacher working side by side with volunteer tutors to teach and learn from English language learner families.

We hope to finish our first targeted campaign by the end of February in time for a celebration on March 2, 2017, which also happens to be “Read Across America Day.” If you are interested in learning more about our plans or want to be involved, please contact Candace at 507-401-7337, or email literacy.swmn@gmail.com.
