KAMLOOPS - On Tuesday morning, Sept. 22, remember to put a few extra coins in your pocket for Raise-a-Reader Day happening in Kamloops, Barriere, Chase, Clearwater and Logan Lake.
Local celebrities, sponsors, sports teams, beneficiaries and staff are volunteering to hit the streets to trade special-edition copies of Kamloops This Week for donations to literacy. 100% of the money collected will stay in the community, to help fund local family literacy programs.
Volunteers will be visible on city streets, at high pedestrian traffic areas, schools, and bus and coffee stops from 7 to 9 a.m.
In Kamloops, the funds raised will support the two literacy groups KELLI (Kamloops Early Language and Literacy Initiative) and LinK (Literacy in Kamloops) who provide many free literacy programs in our community.
