Adel, GA— The Cook County Certified Literate Community Program (CLCP) and the Wiregrass Foundation South accepted a donation from Celestine Hayes on behalf of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Adel recently. The Cook County CLCP is raising funds to help adults, who may not have obtained a high school diploma, improve their education by obtaining a GED®. The campaign called “The Literacy Challenge” has two very important parts; “The Business Literacy Challenge” and “The Gospel Literacy Challenge.” Businesses and churches are being asked to donate to help at least one student obtain their GED through a donation equal to the exam fees. The total cost of the exams is $160.

The purpose of the CLCP is to increase the literacy levels of the citizens in our communities, to maintain community awareness of the need for a literate community, and to determine the literacy needs of Cook County. Your donation will help someone get a better education and help prosper the community. If you are interested in helping with this important community campaign, please call Judy Stewart at 229-468-2207, or Holly Green at 229-549-7368.
