Wrap for Reading:
The Washington Literacy Center, one of the District of Columbia's oldest adult literacy programs, is seeking volunteers to wrap gifts at Politics & Prose (District of Columbia) or Barnes & Noble (Bethesda) this holiday season.
Today in the District for Columbia there are 90,000 adults reading below a fifth grade level. The WLC provides a program to improve their basic reading skills enabling them to take the next step in their education or employment goals. The Gift Wrap Campaign provides funding to support this essential education.
WLC will be wrapping at Politics & Prose every day beginning Friday, November 23. WLC will be wrapping at Barnes & Noble December 3 through December 6. Volunteers are needed 10:00 a.m. through 10:00 p.m. at both locations.
You can volunteer by e-mailing your name and contact phone number email@example.com. The gift-wrap coordinator will send you a link to the schedule for the store of your choice. You will receive instructions and a reminder email prior to your shift.
Thank you for supporting literacy!!
