KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Today was the kickoff for football season, but one bar also made it the spot to start Literacy Week.
Central Taps and Flats in Knoxville donated ten percent of their sales for today to Friends of Literacy.
The organization helps adults learn how to read, and also offer GED classes for adults around the community.
Melissa Nance says one in twelve adults in the community are illiterate, and just a little bit of money could go a long way.
"With just $55 we can afford a scholarship for them which will enable someone to take the GED and therefore change their life," said Nance.
She also said people who receive their GED can earn up to $9,000 more than without one.
