MCRA has again been awarded a Mary Ellen Skidmore Grant for 2020-2021. This $300 grant was given by the North Carolina Reading Association for use in our Council District to promote literacy. MCRA will match the NCRA funds for a total of $600 to distribute among our myriad child/family centered educational projects. MCRA has been involved in most of these projects for years and we continue to expand and adjust the projects to better serve our community. And we are always looking for new projects during the year, as well, so those could be added to our project list as needs arise.
