Praise for support for ILI’s ‘Give Voice’ program
To the editor:
Once again, during this time of giving thanks, our community turned out to help us “give voice” to our many immigrants and refugees studying English in our free evening English program.
Our fifth-annual Giving Voice event was held at the Clarion Nov. 14, when we raised close to $25,000 to help pay for this program and enable our students to successfully integrate into the community. We hope to double this amount on Dec. 12 during the Valley Gives fundraiser.
I am thankful that I live in a community that cares enough to help Give Voice to everyone. Thank you to all of you who sponsored the event and donated to the program.
