In our continued pursuit of empowering individuals through education, we are thrilled to share an uplifting story of collaboration and support from a wonderful group called Social4Good. Social4Good is an organization that brings together engaged women who support organizations that make the community strong through the power of collective philanthropy. Our relationship with Social4Good began in January 2023 when they raised $4,175 for our student scholarship fund, came into our office to learn more about our mission, and picked up 72 packets of textbooks and supplies to deliver to local, new learners enrolled in our virtual classes. They truly enjoyed the textbook distribution and offered to continue to deliver these supplies to EEC learners in upcoming semesters! At the beginning of this summer semester, they delivered 71 more packets of textbooks and supplies for EEC learners.
At the English Empowerment Center, we have always strived to eliminate barriers and provide quality resources and materials to our students, ensuring they have access to the tools they need to succeed in their language learning journey. Traditionally, we have relied on mailing textbooks and class materials to students in our virtual classes, which is both time-consuming and expensive.
Our collaboration with Social4Good not only saves us valuable time and financial resources but also provides a unique opportunity for our virtual students to meet EEC volunteers in person. It fosters a sense of connection and opens doors to the community for our virtual students. The joy and gratitude expressed by our students when they receive their materials from Social4Good members is truly uplifting and heartwarming. This personal touch not only motivates our students to pursue their language learning goals but also creates a supportive network that extends beyond the virtual classroom. It is a beautiful reminder of the positive impact our community can have on each other's lives.
We are immensely grateful to Social4Good for their dedication and commitment to supporting English language education. Their willingness to go above and beyond embodies the spirit of our English Empowerment Center community. Their partnership reinforces our belief that together, we can break down barriers so individuals can empower themselves through education, no matter the challenges.
