August Hamper Week Wrap-Up

Last week, Literacy Now Burnaby volunteers worked tirelessly every day at our first Literacy Hamper Week!

Thanks to donations by First Book Canada and Read On Canada!, we distributed 100s of children’s books at Burnaby food and resource hubs.

And not only that – local residents chipped in generous book donations too, including bestsellers, fantasy, audio books, encyclopediae, crime stories, some gems from local writers, and oh so much more!

The hampers also contained literacy goodies, like writing materials, coloured pencils, and information material from local community service organizations, like the Burnaby Neighbourhood House, the Burnaby Public Library, and NewToBC, amongst others.

Thanks to all involved in making this happen! It’s a true community effort, connecting people through the joy of reading.

If you want to contribute to Literacy Now’s mission of putting A Book in Every Child’s Hand, please consider supporting the Raise-a-Reader campaign! You can find more on this fundraiser on the Literacy Now website.

An amazing week of book giveaways. Fantastic Job to all of our amazing volunteers!
