North Brookfield Savings Bank Presents $1,000 Donation to The Literacy Project Ware Classroom
North Brookfield Savings Bank is pleased to announce their recent donation of $1,000 to The Literacy Project, a nonprofit organization that provides adult education in five locations throughout Franklin, Hampshire and Worcester Counties, covering a 1,500 square mile. The donation was made in support of the Ware Classroom of The Literacy Project which is located at 23 West Main Street in downtown Ware, on the second floor, where classes are free and open to the public.
“The Literacy Project’s Ware Adult Learning Center staff and students are very grateful to North Brookfield Savings Bank for their generous support. The funds are used to purchase much needed school supplies and books for our Ware classrooms,” said Judith Roberts, The Literacy Project Executive Director. “The Literacy Project classes are the on-ramp to the road out of poverty. Once our students attain their education goals, they are better able to support themselves and their families and the whole community benefits.”
The Literacy Project is dedicated to helping adults of all ages continue their education and improve their quality of life. They provide free classes to adults in basic skills, high school equivalency and college and career readiness. Their classrooms offer a wide range of services with the goal of earning a HiSET or High School equivalency to assist with career advancement. Their services includes basic reading, writing, and math, as well as many other subjects. In addition, they support participants to engage meaningfully and equitably in the economic, social, cultural and civic life of their communities. The program helps more than 400 dedicated students each year build a better and more promising future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
“North Brookfield Savings Bank is proud to contribute towards The Literacy Project’s Ware Classroom and to help local community members in their pursuit of their educational goals, career advancement, and improvement of their quality of life,” said Patricia A. Ostrout, Senior Vice President of North Brookfield Savings Bank. “Our communities are continually made stronger by those who commit themselves to excellence and we at North Brookfield Savings bank are proud to support them.”
