Chester, Aug 19, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Literacy Access Fund, a 501(c)(3), public charity, is pleased to announce a contribution in the amount of $500 from Investors Bank, located in Voorhees, New Jersey. Literacy Access Fund secures funding from corporate, foundation, and individual partners to provide financial support to underfunded public libraries through a competitive granting process. The goal of the organization is to help libraries provide equal access to quality educational resources for young learners, regardless of their economic factors.
"Literacy opens up the world to a child and gives him or her a broader view of their own possibilities," said Barry Epps, Investors Bank Assistant Vice President and Banking Center Manager. "Investors Bank supports the Literacy Access Fund's mission to assist underfunded public libraries in opening up the possibilities for more children."
Deborah B. Sorgi, Ed.D., Chair, Director & President of Literacy Access Fund, shared her thoughts, "Literacy Access Fund is proud to financially support literacy and STREAM-aligned academics in underfunded public libraries. We could not have accomplished this without the generosity, vision, and collaborative partnership of a community-minded corporation like Investors Bank." Dr. Sorgi also noted, "Our grant awards will help impact and inspire the leaders of tomorrow who are reading in our public libraries today. Despite some planning their re-opening or open for a reduced capacity, we are dedicated to helping them build their offerings for the young learners in their community."
