Thank you for helping the Brown County Literacy Coalition raise the funds necessary to help Brown County kids succeed in school and in life. Funds raised go to support our efforts, including growing our one-one-one tutoring program for kids in grades K-3; funding our Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program, which provides a book-a-month to 550+ Brown County kids ages birth-5 and costs $13,000 per year to support; and increasing our number of Little Free Libraries in remote areas of the county, which cost approximately $300 each. Why does all this matter? 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children, and the vast majority of children who start behind, stay behind, leading to an increase in our community’s dropouts rate among low-income students. Brown County is a vacation community that often masks the reality of the families and children who live here. Our kids need to know they are supported by their community. BCLC is a 501(c)(3), which means your donations are tax deductible. Our Brown County kids THANK YOU!!
