Colorful Books

Ladders to Literacy Donates books to Ascend Leadership Academy

When CTFD heard that a local school was seeking books to build a library, we rushed to answer the call. Through our Ladders to Literacy program, we were able to donate nearly 500 books to the local middle school. Through promotion of literacy and fire education, we hope to increase community outcomes and decrease poverty.

If you would like to partner with CTFD, please call us.
