Doroty Douglas, First Lady of VermontCheck Into Literacy

With Check Into Literacy, you can support Vermont literacy programs — and the Vermont Humanities Council — when you pay your phone bill. Verizon customers can check a box on the first page of their telephone bill to make a monthly $1 donation; the donation will be added to the monthly bill.

All donations go to Verizon Reads, a non-profit tax-exampe 501(c)(3) charity. Verizon Reads redistributes all the contributions, with no fees or expenses withheld, to literacy charities in the state in which the donation was made.

VHC is pleased that it has been chosen to manage publicity for the Verizon Reads Check Into Literacy program in Vermont. First Lady Dorothy Douglas is Vermon'ts litercacy champion for the project.

Where Do Your Dollars Go?

Imagine the impact if each of Verizon’s 200,000 residential customers in the state gave $12 a year. With Check Into Literacy, you can touch thousands of lives — children, teen parents, corrections residents, and adults who can’t read to their own children.

So, help bring literacy to all Vermont citizens. Check the box on your bill and help all Vermonters learn the joys of reading.
