Thanks to a group of volunteers from United Way of Southwestern Indiana #DayOfCaring on Sept. 9th we completed a survey of 100 people with a #ReadForLife theme. The first question tells us that we have work to do to make sure people know where to send someone if they need help with reading.
Thanks to Dollar General Stores for allowing us to survey their customers!
