Read to Succeed needs volunteer tutors and has just received a helper grant

Scroll down to see how Read To Succeed received the prestigious Nashville Predators’ Helper Grant last month.

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN – Read To Succeed (RTS) continues to change lives through reading, a skill most of us take for granted. However, imagine being unable to read a menu at a restaurant or understand instructions on how often to take headache medication simply because you can’t read the warnings. Perhaps even more devastating is not being able to read a bedtime story to your child, which is often one of the biggest motivators for adults to learn to read.

This Murfreesboro-based nonprofit works to provide a variety of free literacy programs throughout the community…

RTS also helps those who cannot speak or understand English through ESL lessons…

Currently, 1 in 6 adults in Rutherford County struggle with literacy, highlighting the need for more help. RTS is actively seeking to increase the number of teachers in their program to address the ongoing and growing problem of adult illiteracy.

Teaching someone to read can change the direction of not just one life, but that of an entire family…

RECENT SUBSIDY NEWS FOR RTS – Read To Succeed (RTS) was one of 183 Middle Tennessee recipients of the Nashville Predators’ Helper Grant late last month. The grant ceremony, held at the Ford Ice Center Bellevue in Nashville, celebrated numerous organizations’ commitment to community development. “The grant money we provide will be used to fund projects and programs that benefit youth and their families,” said Rebecca King, Nashville Predators Vice President of Community Relations.

RTS received a generous $5,000 grant to support their family and adult literacy programs. This funding is critical to supporting and expanding their initiatives, including Family Literacy Nights, Imagination Stations, Adult Basic Education, and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. These programs are designed to support individuals and families in Rutherford County by providing essential literacy resources and fostering a lifelong love of reading.

Jolene Radnoti, Executive Director of Read To Succeed, expressed her sincere gratitude for the grant. “We are extremely grateful to the Nashville Predators Foundation for their generous grant, which will allow us to continue our literacy mission. This support will allow us to provide resources to children and adults in the community, fostering a love of reading and learning. Thank you for helping us make a positive impact!” said Radnoti.

By supporting programs like RTS’s, the foundation helps ensure that individuals in Rutherford County and beyond have the opportunity to improve their literacy skills, improving their overall quality of life. As RTS continues its mission, this grant will play a critical role in reaching more families and adults, and helping build a stronger, more educated community.
