The Family Literacy Center was thrilled to receive a generous donation from our local National City Bank. The Center was one of several fortunate recipients of several pieces of furniture from National City's now-closed downtown location. Although secondhand, the pieces are in excellent condition and a welcome addition to the Center. Because of this donation from National City, we were able to give several of the chairs already in our offices to the Head Start program. The Center was able to share their good fortune.
The Center is now trying to update their offices which are located in Mott College in Lapeer in several other ways including painting, rearranging and de-cluttering. Volun-teers have taken the lead in updating the office and making it a more welcoming and learning-oriented place for students, tutors, staff and guests.
The Center is hoping for cash donations to cover the cost of paint and supplies. They would also love to talk to willing volunteers with good handyman skills. If you would like to help update the Center's offices, please call them at 810-664-2737 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
