Starlene Stringer’s Volunteer Opportunity of the week —
Literacy Instruction for Texas
One in five North Texans can’t read. That’s more than 800,000 in Dallas County alone and that number is expected to grow to 1 million by 2030. This organization, known as LIFT, hopes to change that. They help adults learn to read and you can help them too. To learn how, click here: http://lift-texas.org/.
