Workplace Wednesday: Raise-a-Reader Day
Date posted: September 24, 2014
Today is Raise-a-Reader Day and hundreds of volunteers in B.C. will start their day working to gather support for family literacy initiatives. On your way to work this morning, please look for local sports celebrities (Vancouver Canucks, Vancouver Canadians, Vancouver Giants, Whitecaps FC and BC Lions); community leaders and government officials; police and firemen; literacy advocates; Raise-a-Reader beneficiaries; and TV and radio personalities handing out special edition newspapers in exchange for a donation to Raise-a-Reader.
Funds raised on Raise-a-Reader Day and throughout the campaign will support literacy programs for children and families, in communities across British Columbia. The funds are distributed by Decoda Literacy Solutions, a proud partner of the Raise-A-Reader program.
