Loonies for Literacy tallies more than $700

PELC students Melissa Jackson and Jennifer Siggens were two of many volunteers helping raise funds to support literacy in Prince Edward County.

UPDATE: CHEERS! from the Prince Edward Learning Centre to the volunteers, students, board members, and staff for helping with Loonies for Literacy Tag Day!  “We raised $724.18 today and more will come in from donation boxes set up around town over the weekend,” notes Lori Farrington, Instructor and Curriculum writer with PELC. “Thank you to everyone who donated their change and their time in support of adult literacy training in Prince Edward County.”

Lindsey Martin, of the Prince Edward Learning Centre, will be among Loonies for Literacy volunteers collecting donations today in support of the Prince Edward Learning Centre.
The PELC helps County adults work toward goals which may include preparing for exams, decide next steps (high school credit courses, GED high school equivalency exam, employment training, Career Assessment Program); learning to read better, as well as understand what they are reading, mathematics and basic computer programs. The centre also offers specific training (skilled trades, cleaner, cashier, landscaping, etc.) and will help students to study and prepare to take the Personal Support Worker course.
Visit the friendly staff at the Prince Edward Learning Centre, located downstairs at the Armoury Mall, Picton. Visit the PELC blog to see who else supports literacy in Prince Edward County.
