Ivy Tech, Hoosier Hills Literacy League partner to promote literacy through burritos

Ivy Tech Community College and The Hoosier Hills Literacy League are partnering to bring awareness to the importance of literacy through a special lunchtime event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 1 at the College’s Lawrenceburg Riverfront Campus.

The event, “Books, Burritos and Board Games,” brings burritos from Chipotle to the campus along with the opportunity to play board games and purchase books.

The event is open to the public. A variety of board games will be available for anyone to play. There will be free giveaways throughout the event.

A burrito and bottle of water is $7. For Ivy Tech students, the cost is $4 when they show their student identification. Chipotle’s delicious house-made chips and salsa will be available for $2, and new books will be available to purchase for $2 each or three for $5.

Event sponsors include the Aurora Chipotle, Thrivent Financial and Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg. All funds raised support the literacy efforts of the Hoosier Hills Literacy League, a United Way Agency that enhances personal growth and individual livelihood by providing literacy instruction, community outreach and supportive resources to residents of Southeastern Indiana.

Among the Literacy League programs are adult literacy classes, the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, Independent Study towards the High School Equivalency diploma (formerly the General Education Diploma) at the Dearborn County Jail, Write and Read to Reconnect with the Jail Chemical Addiction Program, tutor training and one-on-one tutoring.
