Thank you to all who attended the

Women United Virtual

Lunchtime for Literacy

Featuring Keynote Speaker

Jane Robelot

on Thursday, March 25 at 12 noon

We are filled with gratitude for a community of women who support young learners and early literacy, and who made this year's virtual Lunchtime for Literacy a huge success! We are especially grateful to Jane Robelot for her moving and heartfelt keynote address and for sharing so many stories about the importance of literacy, and to West End Elementary Preschool Pages teacher Ruthie Chapman for sharing the impact Preschool Pages has made on young learners at her program this year because of your generosity.

We would also like to congratulate Betty Jo Shaw for receiving the 2021 Literacy Champion Award for her dedication and selfless volunteer service as she manages the book orders and delivery for all six Preschool Pages sites across Pickens County.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated during the event toward our $10,000 goal.

$10,000 will fully fund six Preschool Pages sites for the 2021-2022 school year. Your support provides books for each Preschool Pages child to take home and build his or her own home library.

We have raised $9,785 so far- it's not too late to help reach our $10,000 fundraising goal!

Please give today!




Thank you to our generous event sponsors!
