Anthony’s Story

“In the world today, there are a lot people like me that need help. They might not say it, they might be scared to ask for it, but I’m one of them, I’m a living example.”

This event will raise awareness of adult literacy as well as help raise funds to strengthen and expand adult literacy services for adults who struggle to read.
