Lifting Up Literacy This Easter

For the past 5 years, The Gathering’s Literacy Project has been investing in St. Louis schools. The program has grown from a few mentors in one school, to 125 volunteers serving in our three partner schools; Peabody Elementary, Washington Elementary, and Laclede Junior Academy. Every week mentors meet with kindergarten and first grade students to practice literacy skills, read together, and build relationships.

Your generosity on Easter ensures that we can continue to provide this excellent program to our partner schools. Your gifts will fund:

  • Quality training that will help our mentors grow as individuals and prepares them  be the best they can be for their students.
  • Support for teachers and staff that will help show our appreciation for them.
  • Books for students to take home that will help them learn to love reading.

We raised over $60,000 dollars on Easter. We can’t wait to see how God will grow this ministry as a result of this offering.
