UPDATE: 50th Birthday Party scheduled for July 8 has been CANCELLED (so disregard this flyer below which you may have picked up around town).
On July 4th, the monsoon that blasted Tucson damaged Literacy Volunteers of Tucson’s building located at 2850 E. Speedway. The storm tore off 1,500 square feet of the building’s roof, caused portions of the ceiling to cave in, flooded offices and destroyed the student computer lab, phone system and HVAC systems. Total cost of damages is still to be determined.
Happy 50th Birthday Literacy Volunteers of Tucson, despite this unfortunate news. For more info go to their website, www.lovetoread.org.
Literacy Volunteers is the primary adult-education organization in Tucson serving the needs of adults reading at the lowest literacy levels. This includes those not yet speaking English and those who do, but have difficulty with reading, writing, and/or math. Without LVT, through the support of donors, tutors and other volunteers, and staff, most of our students would have no other learning option. We offer an individualized approach to meet students where they are and to teach to each student’s goals. Students are able to achieve a rich life, full of accomplishments they can dare to dream are possible.
I’m sure if you want to donate to Literacy Volunteers of Tucson to assist them with this monsoon damage, they would welcome your support. For photos of the damage (click here.)
