Raise money for Times Colonist Literacy Foundation

The Times Colonist Raise-a-Reader program is a year-round initiative that raises funds for family literacy programs on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Over $306,000 was distributed to 161 schools and organizations in 2013 with money raised from each of our Raise-a-Reader campaigns, including our Annual Book Drive and Sale. These funds enable the purchase of books and other valuable learning tools for libraries, classrooms and specific programs for people struggling with literacy. –
