NETWORKING WHILE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
A Good Excuse To Donate On Thursday

Every other month GETDOT Cincinnati gets together to provide a place for people to meet with a cause in mind.

As we “kick off” 2019, we are excited because we are going to be trying some new approaches to our meetings, schedule, etc. We hope that you will join us for our February 21st event to learn more about GETDOT and our charity for this month, Literacy Network.

GETDOT Cincinnati will be featuring Literacy Network on Thursday, Feburary 21st. Come on by, network and help make a difference!

Founded in 1986, the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati (LNGC) originally served as a contact and referral hotline for adults seeking to earn a GED, learn English, or enroll in basic reading classes. In 1988, a full-time office was established and LNGC began acting as a coordinating body for adult literacy agencies. Today, the Literacy Network’s core programs have expanded by developing direct services to help adults and children with low reading skills. The Literacy Network is currently working on a new element to our programs, which expands the presence of Little Free Libraries in our city. The mission of the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati is to champion the development of literacy in the individual, family, workplace, school and the community, by raising awareness, improving access and serving as a catalyst for literacy efforts. Approximately 15-20% of individuals lack basic literacy skills (or read below a 4th grade level), making daily life a challenge for them. Our goal is to decrease that staggering statistic and make a difference in as many children and adults lives as possible, by getting individuals the resources and tools they need to learn to read and reach their goals.

The admission to attend is a donation to Literacy Network. In return, you are given door prize ticket(s) for a chance to win one of the donated door prizes. Every penny raised will go towards Literacy Network.

First-time guests receive an extra raffle ticket when they purchase raffle tickets, bring a door prize and an additional raffle ticket for every first-time guest you bring.

GETDOT welcomes anyone at any level and in all professions.
