The Washington Literacy Center needs your help! We’re gearing up for our signature event, Love Letters for Literacy on June 17, 2020 - and we need articulate, energized individuals who can assist us in making the event a huge success. If you have time to contribute to a great cause and enjoy community outreach or just need to fulfill community service hours for school, please complete our Volunteer Sign-Up form, submit it and we will contact you immediately.

Starting on March 25, 2020, THE WASHINGTON LITERACY CENTER will be auctioning off restaurant gift cards, hotel and spa experiences, DC event tickets and attractions, and many more exciting items to bid on to raise money for our mission - and the more items we have the more money we can raise, so we're asking for your help. Showcase your business while supporting a great cause!
