One non-profit has received additional funding to help low-income adults in Prince William County.
TD Charitable Foundation, TD Bank’s “charitable giving arm,” has awarded Literacy Volunteers of America – Prince William, Inc. (LVA-PW) with a $5,000 grant.
It will be used to help area adults learn skills that can prepare them for the workforce, according to a release.
“We are proud to partner with the LVA-PW to support, respect and improve the quality of life in diverse communities where we live and do business,” TD Bank’s Head of Community Marketing Lisa Gruner said in a release.
LVA-PW offers one-on-one tutoring for various topics, including computer and financial literacy, GED preparation, and civics and citizenship.
The adult literacy program has been serving county residents for 27 years. Its 220 volunteers assist more than 700 adults annually.
Funding from individuals and organizations has allowed adults to learn English and find employment.
