ROCHESTER, Minn. – A program that helps people develop their reading skills has gotten a financial boost.
The Rochester Area Foundation has given a $7,000 grant to Rochester Reading Champions. The money will be used to train volunteers and provide tutoring to older students.
“The Grant Distribution Committee recognized that literacy is truly the key to a quality education,” says Foundation Grants Administrator Jane Angelone. “We’re thrilled to be able to help Rochester Reading Champions provide the gift of reading with confidence to adult readers.”
Rochester Reading Champions was launched in 2014 by the Rochester Public Library and community partners.
