This month we would like to thank two outstanding partners for their generous support to SAYL, Dollar General and Valero.
A huge THANK YOU to Dollar General for their ongoing support in the amount of $4,000, which allows San Antonio Youth Literacy the opportunity to continue to deliver its SAYL Reading Buddy Program to those children struggling to read on grade level.
We also want to give a shout out to our friends at Valero. On Friday, September 15, SAYL was privileged to be honored at the 2017 Benefit For Children Charity Award Breakfast held at the Valero Headquarters as one of one hundred and twenty-one local non-profit recipients of the $3,035,000.00 raised during the 2017 Valero Texas Open Golf Tournament. And, making this very special, is the fact that one of our Reading Buddies, Dawn Brake a Valero Associate, nominated SAYL for the award. A big THANK YOU to Valero and Dawn for their endorsement of our program and continued support of the children of San Antonio.
