During the months of March, though August, many of The Literacy Connection’s friends, family members, Sisters,
CSJ Associates, and Agregees made specific donations of groceries, supermarket gift cards and money to be used for
emergency situations. Their generous gifts allowed us to distribute over $6,000 assisting families who had lost jobs,
and were trying to keep up with rent and other expenses. We and our families extend our deep and sincere gratitude
to our “Pandemic Angels” ! Click here to view the full list of contributors.

Cummings Foundation Award 100k for 100 Grant to The Literacy Connection, a ministry of The Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston
The Literacy Connection is thrilled to be the recipient of the Cummings Foundation’s generosity for the next 5 years as our organization expands. Because of this award, our plan is to grow our adult education network in Boston, offering essential referrals and placements for adults who are in the most need of flexible scheduled tutoring sessions, one on one educational and literacy needs, and citizenship preparation. By expanding our tutor base and online presence, we plan to be able to help many more students who are currently in danger of not being served.
