Letter to the Editor: Toast to Literacy

letters to the editor

Editor:

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Char-Em United Way, I would like to thank the many donors, sponsors and volunteers who helped make our 3rd Annual “Toast to Literacy” a huge success.

We want to extend a special thank-you to our sponsors.

The Toast to Literacy raised over $6,000 in support of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, part of Char-Em United Way’s Education Initiative focusing on early literacy skills.

This program mails one new, age-appropriate, book every month to registered children under the age of five in our counties and the proceeds from this event will support 200 children.

There are currently over 1,300 children enrolled in the program.

Lorraine Manary, Executive Dir.
