A great big Thank You to all of our book donors! Without you, we really wouldn’t be able to do what we do. With 95% of our inventory coming from donations, you have helped us distribute over 28,000 books since July.
As we head toward the holiday season we hope you will consider hosting a book drive or fundraiser for The Children’s Book Bank. Office, school and community holiday parties and events are a great way to keep book drives fun and easy. And the books you collect and donate to us help put books into the hands of children who might not otherwise get to own a book of their own.
A special thank you to the Can You Read Festival; a new initiative presented by CulchaWorks and sponsored by TD Canada Trust to create greater awareness about the relationship between hunger and illiteracy. We were happy to spend the day at Harbourfront this summer, helping to promote the cause and thrilled to receive the gift of additional books.
