TLC Chronicles
Readers Are Leaders Event
Our Readers Are Leaders Event has been off to a great start! In celebration of National Literacy Month, we are asking community leaders to become celebrity readers. We are posting their videos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We are hoping to raise money by donations and sponsors. Please share our videos and spread the word. We have two ways to donate:
  • Follow this link to our online donation page:
  • Text "Literacy" to 26989
  • If you know anyone who we should reach out to about becoming a sponsor, please let us know. Thank You!

A Message from The Literacy Coordinator

Hi everyone! I know things have been crazy for everyone as well as for us here at TLC. If you are a new tutor waiting to be paired or veteran tutor waiting to be repaired, we have not forgotten about you. I will be working on new pairings in the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I sincerely want to thank you for helping us with our mission!
