Dominion gives Literacy Partners a lift
Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County has been faced with finding a new space with the pending demolition of Hillcrest School in Kewaunee.
Fortunately, the not-for-profit was offered office space in the former classrooms of the United Methodist Church in Algoma.
After they had moved about 30 boxes, the group realized that moving the “big stuff” was going to be a problem, said Bob Garfinkel of Literacy Partners.
Fortunately, employees at Dominion Power Station in Kewaunee heard about the dilemma and offered to help. Several employees volunteered to provide both the muscle and the truck to move desks, bookcases, and other heavy furniture and equipment last month.
“Literacy Partners would like to thank Dominion Energy for the move and their many years of financial support,” Garfinkel said. “We also offer thanks to the Kewaunee School District for all of their help the last nine years at Hillcrest.”
Literacy Partners of Kewaunee County is the only organization of its kind in the county that provides instruction for adults in reading, writing, GED.509, U.S. citizenship and English-speaking skills.
“Our services will not change, only our location,” Garfinkel said. The new location is 804 Parker Ave. in Algoma.
