Special Charities in support of childhood literacy:
(1) As part of our annual "Adopt-a-School" charitable program, we are initiating a "BIKES FOR BOOKS" program in 2 local elementary schools (Villages Elementary at Lady Lake and Wildwood Elementary). We are providing 1 boys and 1 girls bike (plus helmet) for grades K through 5 to incentivize boys and girls in primary grades to read. For each book read, the students will receive an entry for an end of year drawing for the bikes. The more they read the better their chances of winning. If you wish to support this endeavor please indicate it on your donation or donate through our secure link below.
(2) Tutors or Kids is a community-based organization of volunteers who support the local educational process by responding to school requests for direct classroom tutoring. The Villages Masonic Lodge supports this program.
These two charities are tax deductible (see below*).
