CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 88% of adults in Virginia are literate, but the Literacy Volunteers of the New River Valley believe they may have a way that can improve that statistic with word games. The organization plans on hosting the Word Game Weekend Extravaganza in the upcoming weeks to raise money to support programs to give adults the language and literacy skills they need for personal independence.
