Founded in 1904, the organization operates in all 50 states, 12 countries, and they recently received a $122 million donation from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott. Her donation sets a record as the largest from an individual in the organization's century-long history. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
