Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County is Chosen Again for Hannaford Fundraising Program



Troy, N.Y.: Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County (LVORC), now celebrating 50 years of building a literate community, has been selected again as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program was launched in October 2015 and is designed to support local non-profits through the sale of the reusable Community Bag. Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County has been selected by Hannaford store leadership as the November 2018 beneficiary of the program at the Nine 126th Street Hannaford store in Lansingburgh. Customers can find the green Community Bag on the reusable bag rack at the store. For every reusable Community Bag purchased at the Nine 126 Street Hannaford during November, LVORC will receive a $1 donation.

“This comes at a great time for our organization,” said Judith Smith, Executive Director of Literacy Volunteer of Rensselaer County. “We are celebrating 50 years of helping people to learn to read, write, and speak English, and funds raised through this program will allow us to continue to provide these services free of charge to adults and children in our area.”

Since 1968, LVORC has provided free, confidential tutoring to adults in greater Rensselaer County. We train volunteers to help learners to improve their ability to read, write, speak and understand English; empower our learners to be advocates for themselves; and educate the community about literacy issues. We also offer math, computer, and financial literacy; English Literacy Civics and citizenship prep; and Everybody WINS! Power Lunch reading and mentoring for children. New volunteers are welcome. Visit www.lvorc.org for more information.
