Delaware County Literary Council recently was presented a financial gift from Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union Foundation.

Following the foundation’s Second Annual Golf Classic, the group made a $5,000 donation to the council.

Proceeds from the successful fundraising event were donated to local food banks and other community organizations, including DCLC.

Durante (far right), and Danielle Griffin, Foundation Program Manager, presented the $5,000 donation to DCLC Executive Director Pat Gunnin with a symbolic “big check.”

“We are grateful for the support of FMFCU Foundation,” Gunnin said. “This donation will help local adults improve their literacy skills and work toward their goals.”

The Delaware County Literacy Council helps adults develop reading, writing, math, and English language skills so that these adults can thrive in the workplace and community.
