Got A Favourite Book You'd Like to Share? November 06 2015
Why don't we start the season of giving a little early with A Good Book Drive. This annual event is in its third year running this year and works towards giving young children in need an opportunity to read new books. Working in Vancouver and New York, the book drive teams up with local retailers where books can be dropped off and donated to One to One.
One to One is a children's literacy program that provides private tutoring to children who need some extra literacy help in elementary schools. Children are chosen for this program by trained volunteer tutors and are recognized to receive little or no literacy support at home.
How can you get involved? 2 ways:
1. Purchase a brand new copy of your favourite childhood book and bring it to Walrus (Don't forget to leave a note about why this book is special to you)
2. Donate $25 online here
