Changing lives by improving the reading and math skills of adult residents of Carteret County is the mission of the Carteret Literacy Council. Unlocking the student’s world by learning to read and reading to learn is achieved by volunteer tutors who dedicate four hours a week with them. Students come from all walks of life including those who wish to learn English as a Second Language (ESL) and become productive citizens. All have different goals and desired out comes and are placed with a tutor trained to meet their needs. All consumable teaching materials such as dictionaries, workbooks, citizenship books, and phonics software are provided free of charge and become the property of the student.
Learn how to share your love for reading with others by being a volunteer tutor. The Carteret Literacy Council provides the training you need to be certified as a tutor to those who need assistance to improve their skills. A few hours of your time can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment for someone else.

The core of the Out of the Darkness Walks, the Community Walks created a movement. Held in hundreds of cities across the country, they give people the courage to open up about their own struggle or loss, and the platform to change our culture’s approach to mental health.
This is the only fundraiser the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has each year. This year, we hope to reach more walkers in our 375 walks around the country. For more information or to register for our walk, please visit afsp.org/OnslowCounty.
LIve Maine lobsters will be delivered in La Grange! Each lobster is approximately 1 to 1.5 pounds. Proceeds are going to help us fund our community service projects.

Hurricane Florence made landfall Friday morning at Category 1 strength near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, east of Wilmington. Certain parts of the Carolinas are expected to receive up to 40 inches of rain this weekend, causing terrible flooding. Storm surge has already reached 10 feet in some areas, and a number of water rescues have taken place, notably in New Bern, North Carolina. Hundreds of thousands of people are already without power.
Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief equipment is packed and ready. Our staff have been in contact with our partners in the projected storm impact areas. We now want to stand ready with our volunteer team to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Once the damage assessments are completed and deployment locations are identified, our staff will contact you to discuss scheduling your volunteer trip. Please join us in praying for all those in the path of Hurricane Florence.
