The Sallie Mae Fund announced the following news release:

WILKES-BARRE, Pa, March 23, 2012- The Sallie Mae Fund, a charitable organization sponsored by Sallie Mae, announced a $15,000 donation to the Osterhout Free Library in Wilkes-Barre to support the library's early literacy outreach program. Grant funds will purchase books and literature, as well as advance outreach efforts.

The Osterhout Free Library outreach program enhances early literacy skills for preschool-aged children, families, and caregivers and helps struggling young readers improve their reading habits and skills. The library works with 10 child care facilities, offering educational programming and a rotating book collection. The Sallie Mae Fund has supported the library and Sallie Mae employees have volunteered their time at the library since 1994.

"The Sallie Mae Fund supports programs, like Osterhout's, that foster improved reading performance and provide a firm foundation to help remove many of the barriers that may arise on a child's journey to academic success," said Linda Gramlich, a Sallie Mae employee and volunteer library board president-elect. "Our employees love to put the Fund's mission into action by seeing the happy faces when they help read stories and assist with the library's special events."

Sallie Mae is celebrating its 25th anniversary in Wilkes-Barre this April. As one of the largest employers in Northeastern Pennsylvania, employee contribution programs have raised more than $2.5 million for Pennsylvania charities.
