As part of its commitment to support the Greater Lansing community, Capital City Comic Con (CCCC) has donated $1,726 to The Reading People at the Capital Area Literacy Coalition. The donation comes as part of CCCC’s commitment to provide one dollar for every ticket sold at the 2016 event.
Capital Area Literacy Coalition, also known as The Reading People, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has helped children and adults in the capital area and throughout the state of Michigan learn to read, write and speak English with an ultimate goal of helping individuals achieve self-sufficiency for more than 30 years.
The Reading People provide free one-to-one instruction in reading and writing for children struggling in school, at-risk teens, and adults, tutoring to migrant and refugee families and English as a Second Language instruction.
Randy Chapel, member of Capital City Comic Con’s board of directors, presented the check to Patricia Quinn, chair of Capital Area Literacy Coalition’s board of directors at their September meeting.
Capital City Comic Con is very proud to support The Reading People at the Capital Area Literacy Coalition, and their mission to combat illiteracy in our community.
