The Muskingum County Literacy Council will be able to provide more training programs, thanks to a donation from a local company. In a show of support for literacy efforts, Zanesville Mayor Jack Fenton joined Time Warner Cable officials at the Zanesville office to present a donation of 1,375 dollars, which goes to the Muskingum County Adult Basic Literacy Education Program. Time Warner Cable has conducted an Adult Literacy Campaign for the past twelve years. It has raised over three hundred thousand dollars helping community members learn in fourteen different counties. The money is collected each year in August through cable and roadrunner installation fees. The money provided by donations goes towards books and training equipment. Officials say there are a variety of people that join the program. Some may be students who are seeking a G.E.D, but there are also several other reasons why one might get involved in the reading program. If you would like to donate your time teaching others to read or if you would like to receive extra help with reading, you are encouraged to contact the “A.B.L.E. Group” at 454-7242.
