We thank Metropolitan Washington Mensa for supporting C.L.A.P.’s children literacy causes. (Mensa is a nonprofit organization that encourages learning and community service.) Members of MWM have donated numerous books for our Boys & Girls Clubs’ and Head Start Schools’  literacy programs. They have also participated in children’s reading/book events; MWM’s support has been invaluable.
