United Way of Lake and Sumter – On October 17, United Way of Lake and Sumter County presented Tutors for Kids with a generous check for $7,500, our fourth for 2018. This is the foundation of our book and database program in Lake and Sumter County.
Duke Energy String Bags – And again this year, Duke contributed $5,000 for our book program and also has given string bags for the students in Marion County schools so that students can carry home the books they earn in their tutoring sessions. Bags are available in the Marion County schools where Tutors for Kids has a presence. The bags are imprinted with the Duke Energy Logo and have a large star in the center with the words “I am a Reading Star” in large letters. Also at the bottom right is a message from Tutors for Kids that these students are “Learners Today … Leaders Tomorrow”.
