Thank you LCMC volunteers and staff who called over 500 donors during Do More 24™, an annual phone-a-thon organized by the United Way of the National Capital.
The event was a huge success! Including prizes and offline donations, you raised $13,248 for adult literacy in Montgomery County! What a difference you made in only 24 hours.
LCMC Tutor Honored with Service Award
After retiring in late 2011, Bill Torrey found LCMC and began tutoring students. In May 2016, Bill received the Volunteer Award at the Nancy Dworkin Outstanding Service to Youth Awards Ceremony for his work with LCMC and the Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA).

Short-term volunteer opportunity:
We are looking for a volunteer who can spend one to two hours in our office teaching a student how to use an Android ProScan tablet. The student speaks English fluently, but would like to use her tablet to improve her reading and writing. The volunteer will show the student basic functions of the tablet and help her download free English-learning applications she can use to practice reading and writing.
"Now I can read English news, watch English TV, listen to a radio, write a letter, and email to my son's teacher."
- Wei Li, ESL Student
