A local supermarket made a big donation to fund a literacy program for a southern Nevada elementary school.
Cardenas Markets donated $50,000 to the Public Education Foundation to help fund the Family Literacy Program at Paul Culley Elementary School.
The program works to help improve the parents reading ability so they can help their children. Parents spend two hours every week in the classroom with their children.
"After parents go through this program, they feel more comfortable to read with the children to help with the school and volunteer at the school," Hergit Llenas, with the Public Education Foundation, said.
Parents also go through classes specifically designed to help them improve their reading skills, along with financial and workplace literacy.
