September is Literacy Month

The National Federation of Republican Women has designated September as Literacy Month. Working in concert with the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, the NFRW asks Republican women’s clubs to participate by sharing in community literacy projects.

SUN Area Council of Republican Women will be taking book donations for a Title I classroom. If you would like to donate any books, please bring them to the October meeting or contact Irene Harris, President to make arrangements to have your donation picked up. One book can make a difference in a child’s life. Reading is everything.

SUNACRW Recognized for Its Participation with the Barbara Bush Literacy Program

2015 Literacy Certificate

In 2002, the NFRW Literacy Committee launched NFRW Literacy Month. Each September, local clubs have the opportunity to share their community literacy projects and ideas with other councils.  SUNACRW has been recognized for its continued activities to promote literacy within the tri-county area.  SUNACRW continues to add to a pre-school library for at-risk children within a local community organization providing services to women and their young children.  Over the years SUNACRW members have contributed dozens of books to this effort, acted as adult literacy tutors and promotes reading as a road to success.

We believe as Barbara Bush, ““The American Dream is about equal opportunity for everyone who works hard. If we don’t give everyone the ability to read and write, then we aren’t giving everyone an equal chance to succeed.”
