On Wednesday, Sept. 19, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. we will once again be abuzz as volunteers hit the streets in Barriere for the third annual Raise-A-Reader campaign.

Watch for the bright orange shirts!!  You will see them at locations throughout town.  Along with signs, balloons and lots of energy, volunteers will be “hawking” a special edition of the a Kamloops newspaper in exchange for donations.

So please help us help those in the community who require the services to give them the confidence to be productive and positive contributors in our community.  Difficulties in learning the basics of reading and writing can start with the very young but also extend to adults who struggle in their personal and work life.   You can make a difference.

Every dollar raised is matched by the government and all funds stay in the community, and go towards literacy programs.

Please help us make a difference. Support Raise-A-Reader on Wednesday Sept. 19.
