One in seven Long Island adults are illiterate. Research conducted by the National Institute for Literacy brought light to this hidden problem in our community. We spread literacy in the community by volunteering at a Free Community Book Fair for students who cannot afford traditional book fairs.
Our Chapter members did it again! Another successful Unified Promise is in the books. Eight Chapter members volunteered at the Book Fair, approximately 250 books were collected and donated from the Chapter, and thousands of books were distributed to teachers from local schools in need as well as donated to schools in Africa.
