Literacy Volunteers of Harrison County to Host Annual Texas Roadhouse Fundraiser

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on November 28, 2017 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

The Literacy Volunteers of Harrison County are excited to partner with Texas Roadhouse again for their annual fundraiser.  For $10 a ticket, you can support a great cause and enjoy a plate of pulled pork sliders, green beans, and a salad. This offer is good for dine in or carry out on November 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Tickets can also be purchased at the door on November 30th.  Online tickets sales are available through Monday November 27th and can be purchased at HERE.
 
Through this partnership with Texas Roadhouse, the Literacy Volunteers are able to raise money to continue their free tutoring and ESL classes.  Texas Roadhouse allows the LVCH to keep 40% of ticket sales.  “Fundraisers like these pay the rent. We had nearly 100 volunteer tutor hours in October, helping students from ages 6 to 60.  Every Texas Roadhouse ticket sold makes it possible for us to maintain a learning center for our students and tutors,” says ESL coordinator for the LVHC, Jennifer Lopez.
 
Literacy Volunteers are a not for profit United Way agency and are committed to ending illiteracy. LVHC also provides free tutoring to adults, teens, and children. Tutoring is available in reading, writing, math, pre-GED, ESL, and basic computer skills. We also sponsor free Homework Help programs. Our students come to us for many different reasons. We have adults learning to read; adults who can read, but want to improve their reading or math skills to obtain a GED, get into college, or train for a better job; school children from grades K thru 12 who struggle in a certain subject or just need help with homework; or teens who need a little help to keep up with their peers in school. All of our services are FREE. LVHC is always looking for volunteers as well.
