I want to thank the Salvation Army for getting me into the reading program. I have been in the program for 4 months. I have learnt a lot. It has lifted my spirits and confidence. I get along with everybody. They are all friendly people. It is amazing that at 52 years old I am learning to read. It is a wonderful experience!
