North Texas Future Fund Bridge Award

Little late in posting this week - things have been hopping at LIFT.

Exciting news at the LIFT office - we have been selected to receive the Community Advocate Bridge Award presented by the North Texas Future Fund. This award is given to individuals, literacy providers (that's us!), organizations and corporations who have made significant contributions to improving literacy in North Texas.

Rumor has it we were the only organization to receive nominations from three totally different entities. Thank you to those who nominated us. We will receive our award on Tuesday, April 7th at the Renaisance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.

As always, we acknowledge that we couldn't have reached more than 8,500 adult learners in the past year without the support of our donors and volunteers. Thank you!
