Ohio Personal Injury Lawyer’s Charity of the Month: The Literacy Cooperative

by | February 3rd, 2014

The Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy sponsor a different charity each month in an effort to give back to their community. Throughout the month of February, the firm will donate $2 to the Literacy Cooperative for each new “like” the firm receives on its Facebook page.

The Literacy Cooperative is a nonprofit organization that strives to improve the standard levels of reading and writing among youth in the greater Cleveland, Ohio, area. The group has identified three key reasons for troubles with literacy in the region, and they include:

  • Chronic School Absence
  • Preparedness for an Age-Appropriate Grade Level
  • Summer Learning Loss

In order to combat these problems, the organization has partnered with the Campaign for Grade Level Reading, which works to get all children to the vital third-grade reading level. Experts say this level marks the point at which the brain stops learning to read and starts reading to learn. Achieving the goals of the mission is crucial, considering two-thirds of all fourth graders are not reading proficiently for their age.

The group also sponsors programs that help parents get involved in teaching their children to read.

The attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy recognize the importance of the Literacy Cooperative’s mission and ask every citizen to do their part to support this organization by simply clicking “like” on our Facebook page. Doing so will also help those who are interested stay aware of all of our latest community involvement initiatives.
