Family Literacy Project Earns Grant from TD Charitable Foundation
Manchester Community Health Center has received a $5,000 contribution from the TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, to support the health center’s Family Literacy program. The program’s goal is to improve adult literacy in order to make it easier for families to communicate, obtain and maintain jobs, and improve their lives. Family Literacy Nights are held each week at Child Health Services at MCHC, 1245 Elm Street in Manchester. The classes provide adults with a stress-free environment to improve their English, study for the GED, or prepare for the US citizenship test. Child care is provided during the classes, and kids can get help on their homework or play educational games.
