Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Community Support Network lives by its name

by Murray Snyder

By opening their arms and hearts to us, the Community Support Network has taken our literacy mission to a whole new level – it’s game-changing. At our Global Literacy Outreach Center in Madison WI, MagazineLiteracy.org receives recycled magazine and comic book donations from generous consumers and businesses coast-to-coast who want to share their favorites with new readers. Our success matching literacy needs depends on sorting and cataloging the incoming magazines for selection by literacy programs. Our mission is made possible by community partnerships with can-do teams like the Community Support Network that collect, sort, and share reading materials with vital literacy programs.

imageThe Community Support Network (CSN) is a non-profit agency in Madison WI that provides community based services for adults with developmental disabilities. We offer supported employment, therapeutic services, enrichment activities and a wide array of other individualized services. CSN proudly volunteers our services to MagazineLiteracy.org. Our clients perform data entry and sort incoming magazines into categories. Doing the data entry enables our clients to gain basic computer skills that help prepare them for jobs in the community. Our clients also find enrichment in the sorting process by practicing communication, cooperation, and critical thinking.
