The Gift of Literacy

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Many thanks to those who continue to support Team William! Over the course of the 2015-16 year, the endowment provided scholarship funding for a child with Down syndrome for two semesters (48 sessions). There is no greater gift than the gift of literacy to a child in need. Thank you!
