JASON'S DELI FAMILY LITERACY FUNDRAISER
NOVEMBER 18TH, 5:00 - 10:00 PM
Tonight is our Jason’s Deli fundraiser! We had a wonderful outpouring of support from you and others who RSVPed to make sure tonight could happen. So let me just take a moment and THANK YOU! We wouldn’t be able to teach our students without you in our corner, supporting us and our students each step of the way.
And so, thanks to your effort in getting this fundraiser off the ground, we’ve been green lit to proceed to the next step (my favorite step, as it involves sandwiches)! Tonight, from 5 – 10 PM, at the Jason’s Deli right off the Loop (it’s the only one, so there’s that too) we’ll be holding our Family Literacy Fundraiser!
It’s a delightfully easy fundraiser:
That’s it. Easy peasy. Later, after they’ve tallied it all up, Jason’s Deli will donate 15% of your meal back to us.
Just think about how many people we could help with those funds! How many books we could buy for our Tiny Tots story-time, how many GED study materials, how many English as a Second Language textbooks! And the people behind those books: the ones learning how to read, improving their education, and cultivating a love of reading, all because you ate dinner tonight
- Go to Jason’s Deli or order your takeout online
- Mention Literacy Lubbock (this one’s important!)
- Eat your delicious dinner

TINY TOTS STORYTIME
At Tiny Tots storytime, children have a story read to them and then are given a free copy of that book to take home with them! Studies have shown that larger home libraries lead to a stronger desire to read–and a stronger desire to read leads to better academic performances.
Godeke and Wolfforth Libraries meet on Wednesdays at 12:30PM.
The Dream Center and the Guadalupe Early Learning Center meet on Wednesdays at 10:00AM.
Groves Library meets on Fridays at 10:30AM.
Please note, the Guadalupe Early Learning Center is only for students registered with that program. All other sessions are free to the public!
10:00 - 11:30 AM
