Below is a news release from the Horry County Literacy Council:

The Horry County Literacy Council is looking for volunteers for the upcoming school year!  Did you know that 27 million US adults cannot read and that 30 percent of the population here in Horry County is unable to read the paper, prescriptions or fill out forms?  In addition 20 percent of the population has a learning difficulty such as dyslexia.  The Literacy Council is trying to improve the lives of youth, adults, and families by teaching basic literacy skills.  But we need tutor volunteers to help our mission.  We provide training, materials and will match you with a client.  For more information on our next orientation August 19th  please call Deb Tunstall at 843-839-1695.  HELP GIVE THE GIFT OF READING!
