The Dictionary Project was founded in 1995 by Mary French of Charleston, SC. It’s primary focus is to promote literacy to children in third-grade as they transition from learning how to read to identify and use information. Elks joined this movement in 2004. Nationwide they have donated more than 1.2 million dictionaries to third-grade students and their teachers as sponsors of the Dictionary Project over the last 6 years. There are 600 lodges that actively participate in the program. Kearny Elks Lodge #2478 with the help Frank Buso, Angela Buso and Sheila Stephenson distributed 72 dictionaries to 3rd graders at the Hayden/Winkelman (Pictured) and at the Ray Primary Schools.
