Literacy bees swarm the stack

We have an enormous task to sort and deliver hundreds of thousands of magazines to new readers in Wisconsin, New Jersey, New York City, and Long Island. This “literacy bee” came together recently in Madison to swarm the stack of recycled magazines to make it disappear into hands and homes via literacy programs. We need more volunteers to get the job done and more literacy agencies to receive magazines for their readers.

Riseup to help or to get magazines for your readers.  We have titles for all ages and interests.
