The Loudoun Literacy Council has been selected to be a part of this year’s Loudoun Gifts for Good event. This holiday event will be a part of Leesburg’s First Friday Event on Friday, December 6th from 6PM-9PM at the Carter Braxton Preferred Properties in downtown Leesburg. Loudoun Gifts for Good mission is “To provide our community with a meaningful alternative for year round gift giving – one which celebrates personal charity in support of nonprofits that strengthen our community and promote the common good.”  We are so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful event!

Since 1980, Loudoun Literacy Council has been giving the gift of literacy to members of the community.  We have helped more than 4,000 adults and young people improve their literacy skills through programs supported by the dedication of over 800 trained volunteers.  Your support will help us continue to strengthen our community. You can support Loudoun Literacy by giving a gift of a ‘Baby Book Bundle’ for an at-risk new mother ($10), new books for 5 ‘Birthday Packs’ for children residing in homeless shelters ($25), an entire ESOL class for a Loudoun County adult ($50), supplies for four Head Start students with a school year’s worth of book packs including books for their very own personal library ($100).

Book Bundles - December 2012 NewsletterOur Family Literacy program has been partnering with MotherNet since 2008 to provide Baby Book Bundles to new and expectant at-risk mothers living in Loudoun. More specifically,  the program gives baby book bundles to new moms of babies from infancy to 2 years. These bundles contain bilingual literacy information about the importance of establishing an early reading routine from infancy. Along with the tips, we include two baby books (in Spanish, where appropriate) and a small baby item. The first week in December, we delivered our first Baby Book Bundles of the new school year. These bundles will go to 22 Spanish speaking families and 15 English speaking low-income families that are served by MotherNet.
