Wow! What a year 2020 has been! I think we can all agree that December 31st can’t come soon enough.

It’s important, though, not to focus on the negative. After all, 2020 wasn’t all bad. I want to thank you for your support. As a coalition, we are only as strong as our members and partners. We could do nothing without you. Because of our partnership with Tinker Federal Credit Union, your membership, and others like you, we were able to improve literacy in Oklahoma even amidst a pandemic.

Thanks to our wonderful partnership with Tinker Federal Credit Union, we were able to financially assist Oklahoman literacy providers. This was used, in part, to:

·         Help pay staff,

·         Create an ABE curriculum,

·         Gain 178 new library cardholders at one library,

·         Help 22 people gain citizenship and file another 45 applications,

·         Provide 53 HiSET vouchers for students,

·         Purchase 144 Teacher and student books, and

·         Much more.

 

You are the reason we are able to carry out our mission to support literacy efforts statewide. We would never have been able to help so many Oklahomans without the help of our members.

 

2021 is going to be a full and amazing year for OLC. We have already begun planning. There will be more information coming soon. To be the first to receive updates, invitations, and more, please check our website okliteracy.org, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Look for #oklitcoalition.

Thank you so very much,

Laura Taylor
Executive Director
