Douglas, GA— The Alpha Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma in Douglas presented the Wiregrass Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP) with a check for 100 dollars. The donation will be used to aid CLCP in programs designed to increase the literacy rates in Coffee County. CLCP is the Georgia solution for reaching adults effectively by establishing a non-profit collaborative community effort to promote, support and enhance community literacy efforts. Communities participating in the program analyze their specific needs, create public awareness of these needs, ensure that learning opportunities are offered, and evaluate the progress of the literacy program so that citizens needing to improve their skills do so within ten years. This CLCP network is formed to co-ordinate business, faith-based groups, volunteer, social services, local government, schools and media to reach, influence, and support those individuals who want to improve their education. To find out more about the CLCP in Coffee County, contact Lavonia Stepherson at 229-468-2274.
