Unlocking each child’s potential through the foundation of reading
East Side Learning Center is an educational partnership with the School Sisters of Notre Dame
ESLC thanks you for honoring our founding director, Sister Audrey Lindenfelser, SSND. After contributing to ESLC's mission for over 16 years, Sister Audrey retired as Executive Director to return to her passion of direct service. [Click Sr. Audrey's picture to learn more!]
Together, we met our goal to raise $20,000 in honor of Sr. Audrey, but we have two more challenge matches from the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of the Saint Paul Foundation and a Bremer Foundation match. You can still designate your gift to the Sister Audrey Children's Reading Fund! ESLC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that relies on your generosity to “unlock each child’s potential through the foundation of reading.” Make a gift for children to receive one-on-one tutoring with a caring adult.
ESLC was recently selected as the winner of the United Way 2015 Best in Community Impact - Small Agency award! This award celebrates the work and commitment of all of our partners, working together to unlock each child’s potential through the foundation of reading. THANK YOU for making a difference!
