GFWC donates to SLD Read

Members of the General Federation of Women’s Club — Big Rapids support the educational and reading needs of the youth in the community through their support of the Big Rapids Community Library, Big Rapids Public Schools programs and other programs such as SLD Read. SLD Read works to address literacy issues throughout the community, and in particular, in the schools through trained community tutors. To facilitate the training of local tutors, SLD Read sought the assistance of GFWC Big Rapids in funding the purchase of multiple copies of two books for use in training the tutors. Club members provided $648 to assist with this much-needed training resource.
