The Coronavirus will not impede us from providing literacy support to children most affected by this crisis. Nor will it stop us from recognizing our honorees, Susan and Harry Newton, Tracy Dockray and Mark Rudd, longtime supporters of education in our city.
Today’s educational disruptions cannot affect tomorrow’s need for solutions. Children who read become scientists and doctors who cure tomorrow’s virus, who solve the environmental challenges facing our world, become engineers who address infrastructure shortfalls and design more efficient buildings, become leaders addressing novel challenges we have not yet foreseen.
LINC is relying on the strength of family relationships built over the past twenty four years to roll out a calendar of daily digital programming to keep children most affected by the crisis actively learning. Because we have invested in empowering our parents with books, tools, and resources to foster an atmosphere of literacy at home, LINC families will continue to benefit from daily reading.
LINC needs to raise $150,000 to propel and extend our digital work, ensuring that we can support families in supporting their children. Your support for LINC’S UN-GALA is now more critical than ever. With your generosity, LINC is here for the long haul.
Mark and Tracy share a love of reading. A retired attorney, Mark is an advocate and supporter of mission-driven organizations. Tracy is an author and illustrator of children's books. She hopes to help create lifelong readers through her work in libraries and through LINC's continuing efforts. Bright Dreams, her latest book, will be released this fall.
Susan and Harry Newton have been an important part of the LINC family for decades. Susan is a former early childhood teacher and was a key Board member during LINC’s formative years. In 1997, Harry sold the technology publishing business he started after graduating from business school. Currently, Harry writes a daily blog "In Search of the Perfect Investment."
