Orange you glad you contributed?

The Book Mans Citrus-y Literacy fundraiser has been raising funds for The Chilliwack Learning Community Society for the past four years!

Every Spring, anyone can drop in at the Chilliwack branch of The Book Man to donate $2, $5, $10 or $20 towards the CLCS and write a personalized message on a lemon, lime or orange that will then goes into our fabulous window display by our award-winning display designer, Sara Anthony!

All donations represented by citrus fruits go towards vital literacy programs in Chilliwack.  The CLCS is an amazing organization that was founded in 1990 with the aim to “promote literacy for all groups and individuals”.  They build relationships and partnerships to better meet the learning needs of all community members, to make possible the successful learning, development, and growth of the individual, the family, and the community.

Programs like Early Family Literacy, Youth Literacy, Adult Literacy, Workplace Essential Skills and Ladybug Book Bins all require funding to function throughout the year.  Every penny donated helps sustain these essential services!
