For me it takes boldness to ask for donations. But a wise person told me people usually want to help, and they feel good when they do. They simply need to be aware of the need. So I’m letting you know that the Metro East Literacy Project needs funds to do the literacy work that will help our communities. Not only are many adults struggling readers, but also many children who have gotten further behind due to the pandemic. I know your literacy has served you well throughout your life. Will you pay it forward?
MELP needs operating funds for things like book bags, storage unit rental fees, marketing, website fees, volunteer training, and all the nitty-gritty behind-the-scenes expenses to sustain us. We rely on grants and generous donors like you to see us through. Your support will help us get to the next level of impact. Will you help MELP in our time of need?
