WCLC receives Ladies Benevolent Society grant

The Winnebago County Literacy Council (WCLC) recently received a generous grant from the Ladies Benevolent Society of Oshkosh, an organization that advocates for older adults.

The grant will help WCLC provide services to elderly learners, including English as a foreign language, adult basic education and cognitively challenged learners.

"With the support of organizations like the Ladies Benevolent Society, the literacy council is able to provide tutoring and classes and expand our reach to combat illiteracy in our community," said WCLC Executive Director Terri Hansen.

Since 1989, WCLC has been providing tutoring opportunities to adults and families in Winnebago County, so they can increase their basic literacy skills in order to function in everyday life. One in eight adults in the county (20,000 adults) cannot correctly fill out simple applications or accurately read a road map, according to the National Adult Literacy Survey.

WCLC, a nonprofit organization supported by grants, generous donations and the passion of volunteers, works to "Open the Book on Literacy" in the community through literacy classes and one-on-one tutoring for adults and their families.
