The Times Colonist Raise-a-Reader program is a year-round initiative that raises funds for family literacy programs on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Over $339,000 was distributed to schools and organizations in 2012 with money raised from each of our Raise-a-Reader campaigns, including our Annual Book Drive and Sale, enabling them to purchase books and other valuable learning tools.
This year's Raise a Reader Day is on Sept. 25, 2013.
