Plymouth-Canton Community Literacy Council
We are a volunteer, non-profit organization aiming to improve adult literacy in Plymouth-Canton and surrounding areas of Western Wayne County. Our mission is to provide adults in Western Wayne County who have limited English language abilities in developing vital reading, writing, and communication skills to help them participate in the community and reach their potential in life.
In the month of August, Community Literacy Council is partnering with B2 Outlet Store in Canton.
B2 Outlet Stores partner each month with a different local non-profit. A portion of Canton's B2 Outlet Store's profits from August sales will be given to Community Literacy Council enabling us to purchase student materials in support of our mission of promoting literacy in our community.
B2 Outlet Stores feature new items at discounted prices. These items include clothing, home goods, appliances, and furniture. B2 Outlet Store's motto is: purchase with a purpose.

At CLC we work with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. CLC is a safe place, absent of xenophobic, racist, and sexist language and behavior. Further, sexual harassment of any form will not be tolerated. Our values at CLC support our beliefs of inclusivity and respect for all people. Our students are shown the kindness, respect, and grace that each member of our CLC family deserves, so that they may continue to thrive in our community.
