Why do we support Adult Literacy League? Literacy is an essential foundational skill in 21st century Central Florida. However, in our region, 44% of adults do not have the literacy skills they need for home, work and life. In fact, 1 in 5 (20%) struggle with very serious literacy challenges and have trouble reading even the most basic text. An additional 20% can read but not well enough to meet the demands of today’s society.
Come help us support this worthy organization and enjoy GOOD times together!
