Literacy Source - A Community Learning Center's Fundraiser:

Thru-Hiking the PCT for Literacy

Literacy Source - A Community Learning Center's Photo

THE STORY:

Many of us take the ability to read, write, and perform basic math for granted. We came up through good schools, we had teachers who catered to our needs, and we could easily find learning materials that reflected our lives and experiences.

For so many in the United States, and in Seattle, where I live, this level of literacy is a dream, not a reality. Since 2013, I have worked at Literacy Source, a wonderful non-profit providing FREE basic education to adults in the Seattle community. Our students come from all over the world, and Literacy Source serves their needs in the following ways:

  • Adult Basic Education (reading, writing, math) classes
  • English as a Second Language (ESL) classes
  • Citizenship classes and citizenship assistance
  • GED prep classes
  • Computer and technology education

This spring and summer, I'll be hiking from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. My goal is to raise at least $2,661 dollars for Literacy Source: one for every mile that I'm going to walk. Your donations will be put towards the goal of making a more literate and civic-minded Seattle community, and that benefits everyone, from students to employers to voters.

What can your donations do for Literacy Source?

  • $50 supplies 2 ESL students with workbooks for a year
  • $150 provides books and materials for 1 class
  • $300 helps prepare one citizenship student with instruction and application assistance
  • $300 buys a ChromeBook to help increase digital literacy
  • $500 buys an iPad for our ABE Beginning Literacy class
  • $2,000 funds ten weeks of Parent ESL instruction at one of our neighborhood school programs

In the grand scheme of the fundraising world, $2,661 is a drop in the bucket. But for Literacy Source, that two grand represents a chance to help members of our community build better lives. Won't you walk with me?
