Roscommon County Literacy Council Receives Grant

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is happy to announce that the Roscommon County Literacy Council recently received a grant of $1,000.00 for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Funding for this project was provided by the Morley Family Foundation Fund, the Roscommon County General Fund, and the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund.

The purpose of this grant is to make it possible for all children under the age of five to receive one book per month upon enrollment into the free program. There are currently 545 children enrolled, with approximately 700 graduates since the program started 10 years ago. The Literacy Council hopes to keep increasing these numbers for both children and adults for years to come.

Want to get involved? You can support the Morley Family Foundation Fund, the Roscommon County General Fund, and the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund by making your donation payable to RCCF at P.O. Box 824, Roscommon, MI 48653 or by visiting our website at www.myrccf.org to make a donation online.
