Trident Literacy Association has received a grant of $3,000 from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing South Carolina.

Boeing South Carolina teammate and ECF board member Jeremy Boselly presented the check to Stella Necker, site manager of Trident Literacy’s TC Drayton Center on Meeting Street in downtown Charleston.

“We know it will help you help your students gain the skills they need to be successful.” Boselly said. “We are very grateful for the important work you do for your students and the community.”

“We cannot thank you enough for your generosity,” said Eileen Chepenik, Trident Literacy’s executive director. “This donation is more than corporate — it’s personal. We deeply appreciate that you took the time to visit us and learn about Trident Literacy and what we are doing.”

The funds will be used to upgrade the outdated computer lab at Trident Literacy’s downtown site. That site is one of Trident Literacy’s six main locations throughout the tri-county.

The nonprofit organization provides individualized, self-paced, one-on-one instruction in basic literacy, GED prep, WorkKeys Career Readiness Skills, English as a Second Language and basic computer use to adults ages 17 and up.
