Drive Illiteracy Out of Macomb with the Richmond Rotary! Thursday, April 14th

The Richmond Rotary Club is known for their generosity in the community their "Drive Illiteracy out of Macomb" event is yet another example. When the Richmond Rotarians learned 13% of Macomb County adults struggle with illiteracy or low literacy they sprang into action to organize a fundraiser to help non-profit Macomb Literacy Partners provide free literacy tutoring for adults. It's clear low literacy keeps many adults in the county from reaching their full potential as parents and workers. The Richmond Rotarians want to help those who seek to help themselves by improving their reading skills. It's the first step toward preparing for the GED, going on to adult ed, college or a job training program. It's a worthy cause. For Tickets Call - Richmond Rotary - 586-727-2184 Macomb Literacy Partners 586-286-2750
