Raise a Reader Day
Raise a Reader Day is a province-wide literacy awareness event where volunteers will offer to exchange a Vancouver Sun for a donation towards literacy programs across B.C.
Bowen Island benefits greatly from this campaign, receiving funding for programs like Tech Tutoring, Youth Food Security, Father Time, Mother Goose, Youth Curator and others. Volunteers will be on the ferry and moving along the ferry line from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. with copies of the Vancouver Sun to give out, asking Bowen residents to make a donation.
Remember, no amount is too small or big. Please help us make Wednesday, September 25, a spectacular Raise a Reader Day.
This initiative is upported by the Bowen Island Art Council, the Bowen Children’s Centre, the Bowen Island Community Foundation, the Bowen Island Community School and the library.
