MONROE– Common Heart Literacy Volunteers opened a headquarters at 115 Henderson St. for a new outreach program to promote adult literacy in Union County.
After the closing of the Literacy Council of Union County this summer, Common Heart staff and volunteers joined with the council’s remaining and former volunteers, tutors, community partners and others to relaunch the mission of adult literacy.
The office and computer learning lab, staffed by volunteers, will be open for students and tutors on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon and 5 to 8 p.m.; Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
“Volunteers are a key part of our strategy,” said Keith Adams, executive director of Common Heart. “Since Common Heart started over 13 years ago, our focus has been to empower local neighbors to serve others and promote a small revolution of kindness.”
If you know an adult who wants to improve their English reading and/or writing skills have them call the literacy office at 704-993-6931. Literacy Volunteers also serve those wishing to learn English.
