A Coquitlam elementary school will benefit from the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Adopt a School program.
The goal of the program into raise one book for every student.
The program running now until Oct.6, connects the Lougheed Town Centre Coles store with the Mountain View elementary school and the surrounding community to help provide support for much-needed additional library resources.
According to a press release, the fundraiser will enable this school to upgrade its library collection and enrich the lives and education of its students.
This year, 182 Canadian high-needs elementary schools across the country have been “adopted” by local Indigo, Chapters and Coles stores in their communities who will fundraise on their behalf.
Supporters can participate by making a donation in-store or through the Adopt a School registry at loveofreading.ca. Each school’s unique registry will consist of 50 books for supporters to shop during the campaign. When a book is purchased from a school’s registry, Indigo will double the impact of each customer’s donation by providing an additional copy of that book to the school, enabling even more children and youth to benefit.
This is the 11th year of the Adopt a School Fundraiser.
