Mary Ellen Skidmore Grant

Gina Matthew, Chair

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.

Our projects include:

  • Moore County Habitat for Humanity (school supplies bag for new Habitat children)
  • Authors in Moore County Schools (AIMS)
  • Northern Moore Family Resource Center (books)
  • Little Free Library Project of Moore County (libraries and books)
  • Books for the Pediatric wing of First Health Hospital
  • Books for laundromats & doctor's offices waiting rooms
