Every call is different. One caller might be asking for help with reading, another might be asking for help to speak English. The next might be a adult struggling with the secret of being illiterate. We might not be able to solve all their problems, but we do provide a soothing voice and a caring ear - and before the call ends, the individual calling will have the help they need, that is our mission.


Visit Jersey Mikes's Subs in Rockford or Machesney Park March 1 - 31, 2015 and make a donation to The Literacy Council!  It's a win / win!  You get a coupon for your next visit based on the amount of your donation.  For instance, donate $1 = $1 off on your next visit, $3 = chips and a beverage & $5 = a FREE sub with the purchase of a sub.  

Wednesday, March 25th - stop in for lunch or dinner and 100% of proceeds for the entire day will go directly to The Literacy Council!

Thanks to our friends at Jersey Mike's Subs and YOU!
