Partner Spotlight! 826Michigan: Ann Arbor, MI

Whether you love making New Year’s resolutions, or just believe that the present moment is the best time to become the person you want to be, we at 826michigan would love to support you as you meet your goals in 2014. We’re strong believers in the power of volunteerism: volunteering allows people to provide a meaningful service, connects them to their community, helps them to learn new skills, expands comfort zones, and encourages new friendships. Plus, the feeling of reward and accomplishment in working toward larger cause just can’t be matched!

Partner Spotlight: 826Michigan

We've been so fortunate to have such strong participation and support from our partners at 826Michigan during March and throughout the year. In addition to their January partner spotlight, we've asked them to share some of their thoughts around literacy in honor of National Reading Month: 

"One of our core beliefs at 826michigan is that strong writing skills are fundamental to success in school and in life."

Why is literacy development important to our community?
