September was filled with productive activities and good news for our Literacy Council! In addition to holding our AA Cares fundraiser and receiving an “Education Nonprofit of the Week” designation, we staged a fundraiser and 35th Anniversary Celebration at Barnes & Noble. We also held a very successful Day 1 of our Fall tutor training, with 38 new tutors in attendance.
The AACLC was honored to receive a generous $5000.00 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, which was presented to us at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Grand Opening of the TD Bank in Edgewater, MD. We were interviewed by Fay Mauro on WNAV radio, featured in a Glen Burnie East Gazette article, and received Proclamations from Anne Arundel County and the City of Annapolis to honor our 35 years of improving adult literacy through our free, individualized, one-to-one tutoring program.
We have so much to celebrate!
