The Somos Network collected 788 children’s books from refinery employees for Children’s Literacy Week. The books were delivered to the United Way for Jackson and George Counties for distribution.

A 2003 National Assessment of Adult Literacy study found that 44% of Hispanic adults had a “below basic” literacy level, which was the highest percent of any other race/ethnicity and a 9 percent decrease from 1992. The Somos Network is committed to changing this statistic by promoting literacy in future generations.
