Literacy Now Burnaby is Growing!

As COVID-19 restrictions are easing, we are again out and about, and on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, we gave away over 300 books at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House South Food Hub.

This time with support of our own team of dedicated Literacy Now volunteers, we worked tirelessly in hot weather in 2 shifts to continue with our mission to put a book in each child’s hand.

We’d like to express our special gratitude to 5 anonymous community members for their generous donations of bestseller books, puzzles, and board games! 

Follow us on social media to stay up to date on all of our activities. We’ve got plenty of great things in store!

Literacy Hampers at the Food Hub

Literacy Now Burnaby handed out 100s of books at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House south food hub today.

With the help of our busy volunteers, people received literacy hampers with age-appropriate books, colours, activity sheets, The West Coast Reader, and info in various languages on community resources like the Neighbourhood Small GrantsBurnaby Public LibraryNewToBC, etc.

This project was made possible through the Raise a Reader campaign and donations from community members, with materials from First Book Canada.

Thanks to everyone at the BNH food hub, we hope to continue this project to put a book in every child’s hand!
